How to Think Like Shakespeare

In April, Princeton University Press published How to Think Like Shakespeare: Lessons From a Renaissance Education by Scott Newstok ’95. In the book, Newstok cites great writers from the past and present and urges readers to think more deeply, learn more joyfully, and write more efficiently. The book stems from a convocation speech Newstok gave in 2016, in which he encouraged students to strive for “a level of precision, inventiveness, and empathy worthy to be called Shakespearean.”
