Summary: Educated - A Memoir by Tara Westover
Notice: This is a SUMMARY of Tara Westover’s bestseller, Educated: A Memoir.
Educated: A Memoir became a #1 New York Times bestseller for simple reasons…In Educated: A Memoir, Dr. Tara Westover recounts her experiences growing up in rural Idaho under the authority of fundamentalist Mormon parents and an abusive older brother. Her father believed public education to be a danger to their way of life and, therefore, Tara did not attend school. Her mother, a self-taught midwife, and herbalist served as the family’s source of medical assistance during sickness and even severe injuries.
Tara eventually left her mountain home and received a formal education, graduating magna cum laude from Brigham Young University and then earning her Ph.D. from Cambridge University while also winning a Gates Cambridge Scholarship. The process of becoming educated set her on a path that proved unacceptable to her parents and some of her other family members.
It was also a path that gave Tara the ability to perceive her entire childhood in a much different light. In that light, she found a truer way of existing.
Her story reveals nine principles that are present in many journeys walked by those who seek growth, maturity, truth, and authenticity. This summary and analysis shares those nine principles and the specific instances of Tara’s story that revealed them.
If you resonate with Tara’s journey and the principles therein, we highly advise you to read the full book.
