Description: "If [J. D.] Vance's memoir offered street-heroin-grade drama, Westover's is carfentanil, the stuff that tranquilizes elephants. The extremity of Westover's upbringing emerges gradually through her telling, which only makes the telling more alluring and harrowing." -- The New York Times Book Review "Westover is a keen and honest guide to the difficulties of filial love, and to the enchantment of embracing a life of the mind." -- The New Yorker "An amazing story, and truly inspiring. It's even better than you've heard." --Bill Gates "Heart-wrenching . . . a beautiful testament to the power of education to open eyes and change lives." --Amy Chua, The New York Times Book Review "A coming-of-age memoir reminiscent of The Glass Castle." -- O: The Oprah Magazine "Westover's one-of-a-kind memoir is about the shaping of a mind. . . . In briskly paced prose, she evokes a childhood that completely defined her. Yet it was also, she gradually sensed, deforming her." -- The Atlantic "Tara Westover is living proof that some people are flat-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable. Her new book, Educated, is a heartbreaking, heartwarming, best-in-years memoir about striding beyond the limitations of birth and environment into a better life. . . . out of four." -- USA Today "[ Educated ] left me speechless with wonder. [Westover's] lyrical prose is mesmerizing, as is her personal story, growing up in a family in which girls were supposed to aspire only to become wives--and in which coveting an education was considered sinful. Her journey will surprise and inspire men and women alike." -- Refinery29 "Riveting . . . Westover brings readers deep into this world, a milieu usually hidden from outsiders. . . . Her story is remarkable, as each extreme anecdote described in tidy prose attests." --The Economist "A subtle, nuanced study of how dysfunction of any kind can be normalized even within the most conventional family structure, and of the damage such containment can do." -- Financial Times "Whether narrating scenes of fury and violence or evoking rural landscapes or tortured self-analysis, Westover writes with uncommon intelligence and grace. . . . One of the most improbable and fascinating journeys I've read in recent years." --Newsday
