Product description

Review

"Smart and sensitive advice." --Jay Matthews, The Washington Post

"This book is the perfect high school graduation gift.... Highly recommended because it is full of practical tips that will help high school grads take the next step in life. Young readers will find many of the insights counterintuitive, refreshing, and funny too." --Money

"This deliberately provocative book is a good way for a smart student to see how out-of-the-box thinking can lead to success in college." --Kimberly Marlow Harnett, The Seattle Times

"Clear, concise and organized information that every soon-to-be or present college student should read and use . . . an excellent choice for your college-bound teen." --Denise Witmer, About.com Guide for Parenting of Adolescents

"Every college student, or every parent of a college student, must buy this book!" --Jeffrey J. Fox, author of How to Become CEO and How to Become a Rainmaker
