Five More College Dialogues follows George Tecce’s return to academia as he travels to the West Coast to pursue his Ph.D. The intriguing graduate student is teaching a class on his own for the first time. George continues to help students navigate the ins and outs of college life with enlightening analytical discussion. He mentors them in a range of diverse subjects including social dynamics, resume building, and relationships. The learning doesn’t stop in the classroom as George even makes his way to a party!

Humorous and philosophical, the Dialogues are a perfect resource for students to learn about and maximize their college experience.


Five More College Dialogue is the follow up to Five College Dialogues. Just like the first book, this one is not only philosophical but was also comedic which makes this book a great way to learn about life (mostly college life) without you getting bored.

I don’t know about others who have read this and the first book, but each time I read this dialogue filled book, I can’t help but read them aloud like I am in a talk show – which, mind you, makes my whole reading experience more enjoyable. The ever popular George “Chief” Tecce is getting more and more serious in this book. What do I mean? Well, in my opinion, unlike the first book, in here, “chief” shared a more mature and well, let’s say longer opinion about something, (e.g. about the keg, etc) which can be a bit boring to some. But what’s great about it is that he ends it with a bang. You don’t get what I mean? Well, he managed to end it with a witty or sarcastic comment which can be a mood booster. Not just a no nonsense dialogue but with an addition of humorous remarks. 

All five dialogues sure make sense and I love all of them. But there’s this one dialogue that stands out for me. You might be asking why eh? Well, it’s because it happened to me. What dialogue was that? It was the fifth dialogue. Can’t help but quote all George’s lines that hit me. All of those other four dialogues could sure happen to us in college, but the last dialogue is the gravest part for me. It speaks to your future and the idea of not being able to achieve your desired goal could make us all go gaga. Gladly, I was able to handle it, well after shedding a few tears ofcourse.

This book didn’t disappoint me at all. Very comical and plenty of life lessons that would make you think over about your life as well. As I’ve mentioned in my review of Five College Dialogues, I love reading dialogues (maybe I was a professional dialogue reader in my past life, if there’s any lol) and what’s great is that I’m not just reading a simple dialogue, but a philosophical one. (how great is that?) I’m not just reading but learning. It was also properly written, though there were two or three words that I needed to consult my friend Meriam D. for its meaning, but it wouldn’t be enough reason for you to get confused with the story.

After reading these two books, I can’t help but think that I wish this book was published a bit earlier. I bet it could have helped me get over with my college years more easily. Oh well, what’s life without a little hardship eh?

Whether you’re a college student or a graduate, this book would be a perfect fit for you. Philosophical book with a mixture of humor, Five More College Dialogue will never fail you.
