Long STEM Roads for Life: Math Education and STEM Careers
Andrew S. Miller ’80 • CreateSpace, 2013

All the Truth That’s In Me

Let’s be candid, says the author. The stars are aligned against STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers. The stars of academia, that is. Public opinion is out of sync, too. STEM topics don’t get enough respect. They are in the orbit of educational thinking but eclipsed by one of many celestial bodies of knowledge. In this book the author provides an explanation for why so few choose STEM careers and a solution for better STEM preparation.

Andrew S. Miller, M.S. ’80, spent half his career as a rocket scientist and half as an engineering and math professor.

Four People You Should Know
Stu Schlackman ’74 and Nathan Bryce • BetterWay Media, 2008

Separate Worlds: A Journey of Discovery

Four People You Should Know helps you identify not only your own personality style, but also the style of others around you. You will learn how to apply the techniques in the book to understand how each of the four personalities prefers to communicate and make decisions, how they view risk and conflict, and what they value. The book’s focus is on sales, team building, and leadership style.

Stu Schlackman ’74 is a professional speaker focused on sales, communication, and building high-performance teams. His book Don’t Just Stand There, Sell Something was published in 2004.
