Review:

Real College masterfully presents critical information on key topics in a format that is engaging and entertaining. -- Julie C. Lythcott-Haims, Dean of Freshmen, Stanford University

Every student affairs office should recommend it. -- Loren Pope, author of Colleges that Change Lives and Looking beyond the Ivy League

Extremely funny, astonishingly helpful. Every college student and college-bound high school senior should read it. Period. -- Henry C. Moses, Headmaster, Trinity School and former Dean of Freshmen, Harvard College

Remarkably well written, truly reader friendly, and full of good ideas. I highly recommend this book. -- Richard J. Light, Walter H. Gale Professor of Education, Harvard University, and author of Making the Most of College

Stone and Tippett address serious, substantive, and challenging issues with deep psychological wisdom. This book is superb 'must' reading. -- Charles Ducey, Ph.D., Director, Bureau of Study Counsel, Harvard's Center for Psychological and Learning Services
