BOOK REVIEW 4 of my actions on social media. The book has also taught me the importance of personal and face- to-face interactions. In my personal life and even in my professional endeavors, I intend to use social media less and instead work towards forming personal relationships and genuine physical friendships with people. The book has taught me the art of valuing oneself, and I intend to educate others about valuing themselves without relying on social media feedback. I admit that Alter’s book is very insightful and an excellent resource for all people in this current generation.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
