Zauzmer s perspective is that he is just enormously dishonest he sounds to me pathologicalZauzmer has really drunk the KoolAid concerning Harvard and ends the book saying that the effectiveness f a 30 billion corporation in vindictively puinishing a student who made a fool f it is a stand for truth which benefits all f us Get real Adam Wheeler is in no way a symbol f dishonesty among college applicants in general The case is clearly an utlier not a symbol Dirty Dozen 2 (12 Taboo XXX Tales) of anything Was John Wayne Gacy a symbolf anything about modern societyThere is an underlying arrogance which disturbs me Zauzmer is in general patronizing about Bowdoin where Wheeler started his college career She says at ne point that it s hard to understand how a student with Wheeler s forged credentials would have chosen a school this lacking in prestige though Bowdoin is consistently ranked among the top few institutions f higher education in the US She says than nce that Brunswick ME where Bowdoin is located possesses an uncomfortably arctic climate though its average annual temperature f 45 degrees is nly six degrees lower than Cambridge MAAnd what especially troubles me is that it took so very long for Harvard to uestion Wheeler s absurdly lofty credentials His achievements were so extensive that it is hard to believe that they were not uestioned and indeed Wheeler was denied admission at several schools though that is not mentioned in the book aside from a reference to Yale It takes a kind f arrogance for a admissions readers to see an admissions candidate whose prose is so abstruse as to be a burlesue f normal writing as a match for the education their institution ffersI am also struck by a student who was r less an above average student at a fairly average public high school was able to get mostly B B grades at Harvard before he started cheating in his coursework How demanding can the education be if a student whose credentials are well below the threshold for say thirty r forty Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy of the most selective colleges and universities in the US can do competent if undistinguished workBut mostf all there is a human tragedy here to which the author seems immune There is no evidence Wheeler is a truly bad kid What made him embark Greetings! on all this fraud and do it for so long I feel sad for Wheeler and his parents and wish he were described fully as a human being rather thanversimplified as merely a criminal This is not the symbolic story the author claims but the painful tale f the degeneration f an adolescent for reasons which are never exploredI agree with the Tribeca other reviewers who see the book as not especially well written It also has a look at me uality somehow and the book lacks thebjectivity which should characterize good journalism The we re good and he s bad tone becomes Grey's Lady offensive because both sidesf that are an Blue Streak over simplification Adam has major andbvious flaws and Harvard has none Not very interesting at least not to me DNF I m not sure what I wanted when I began this book but I didn t get it There are some interesting tidbits about the college application process at top tier schools along with some general criticism f that process along with plagiarism and cheating among high school and college students I was curious about Adam Wheeler and his specific cons although I think calling him a con artist is going a bit far but that took a backseat to the author s wn agendaviewpoint Interesting topic but poorly executed I just couldn t get into it A 21st Century Catch Me If You Can I have little doubt that Adam Wheeler has a bright mind What s most impressive is his grit to work vertime I was fascinated by this well written and exhaustively detailed book about a young man who faked his.

For me this kind f book is a guilty pleasure I love stories about frauds and con artists Usually I root for them but it was hard to like the fraudster in this book because he lied and plagiarized not just to get into Harvard Bowdoin and Stanford but also to be a straight A student and win top prizes At first I was not very impressed by the writing style Leaving Mother Lake: A Girlhood at the Edge of the World of this book butnce I realized that the author is a college kid herself I had a lot f respectThe story f what the con artist did is uite interesting and I won t spoil it here except to say that he was following the school f thought that says the bigger and ridiculous your lies are the likely it is that you ll get away with it The author is too respectful f the Harvard admission s department and administration to delve deeply into why it took them so long to catch Introductory Algebra: Models Concepts Skills on A smarter moderate cheater would never be caught If all he d wanted was to collect a Harvard diploma none would ever have caught Adam Wheeler but then he set his sights Marriage After God: Chasing Boldly After God’s Purpose for Your Life Together on a Fulbright I like that the author has an insider s view because she is a Harvard student herself but I think it also made her blind to uestions that wouldccur to an utsider Like what is so great about Harvard that people will do anything to get in what is the spell that people are under That is so bizarre it should be a chapter in itself But I got the sense that the author feels that way too like naturally the highest dream f any student would be to go to Harvard so no explanation needed And my biggest uestions went unanswered What motivated this guy Why did he keep Blue Blood on doing the same things even after he got caught None knows the answers to these uestions probably but I would be curious to hear what the people who knew him thought Also what was his childhood like Any interesting backstory The Gollywhopper Games: Friend or Foe on this guy What was wrong with him anywayAt times the fraudster must have spent much time copying and editing little snippetsf plagiarized material than he would have just writing a few sentences The few pieces Parafilias (Spanish Edition) of hiswn writing in the book are almost complete gibberish Did he do any f his college course work Would he read the assigned books in his classes I thought it was interesting that the person who finally caught him was not cynical r suspicious than the The Mirage other people who d read Adam Wheeler s amazing transcripts recommendations and resumes He was just caring worried that this student was takingn too many responsibilities at a young age Oh and he d read the essay that the fraudster lifted Anyway the whole book brought back my college days in the humanities where it didn t matter if my papers made sense r were n topic as long as they had a certain tone and lots Rituels secrets des Templiers of three dollar words It s written by a reporter for The Harvard Crimson and to be frank you can tell Not that the reporting isn t thorough but a you can tell she disapprovesf the whole scandal while I was actually interested in how he did it than in hearing how bad it is to cheat and b it is VERY dry I gave it about 30 pages before uitting An interesting re telling f real life Adam Wheeler who conned his way into Harvard as well as the broader social implications that contribute to cheating This book is both fascinating and irritating First the upside Zauzmer has done meticulous research and the story provides a lot f detail A Mild Suicide on how Harvard s admission process works which is interesting to me as a former deanf admissions and current independent college counselor The details Beethoven for a Later Age: The Journey of a String Quartet of Wheeler s cons and forgeries is almost always fascinating The story does not really work well however because Wheeler isnly seen from the Born to Ride: A Story About Bicycle Face outside His voice is sorely needed He did crazy stuff with a 100% chancef being caught While.
