Review:

"I applaud the author’s efforts in promoting a shift from the ′one way to win′ stance toward that of helping students face reality and develop career goals that will help them be successful." (Shawn Grime, School Counselor 2008-04-17)

"Stresses the need for career maturity. This is one of the few books that addresses this topic so well." (Diane Smith, School Counselor 2008-04-17)

"This book is a must-read for those involved in developing futures planning for students in ninth grade through their exit from high school into adult life." (Kelli S. Kercher, Transition Specialist 2008-04-17)

“Gray provides a systematic method for working with students to look at opportunities after high school in a realistic way.” (Mary Reeve, Director 2008-04-17)
