Disclaimer: This is the Summary of the Original Book Educated: A Memoir By Tara Westover."Educated" is one of the best books one can dive into. While the current society believes in the power of formal schooling, and most Americans go to kindergarten, elementary school, high school, and college, Tara Westover had a different life.Born in a religious Mormon family, her father considered formal schooling as a brainwasher for children. As a result, the only education the children received was scarce and independent, reading from time to time what they wished. "Educated" tells the beautiful, yet sad and heart-touching experience of Tara Westover, who evolved from a deeply religious young girl to a successful student attending college, earning a doctoral degree at Cambridge University finally. Her journey was certainly not smooth, and her success came with great costs. Tara Westover did not only get "Educated", but she fought every moment for her achievements.
