Synopsis: Asians and Asian-Americans make up 4% of the U.S. population...and 20% of the Ivy League. Now find out how they do it.

The numbers speak for themselves: 18% of Harvard's population; 25% of Columbia's; 42% of Berkeley's; 24% of Stanford's; 25% of Cornell's...

What are Asian parents doing to start their kids on the road to academic excellence at an early age?  What can all parents do to help their children ace tests, strive to achieve, and reach educational goals? In this book, two sisters-a doctor and a lawyer whose parents came from South Korea to the U.S. with two
hundred dollars in their pockets-reveal the practices that lead Asian-Americans to academic, professional, and personal success.

About the Author: Dr. Soo Kim Abboud is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and is active in the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Otolaryngology, and the Association of Women's Surgeons.

Jane Kim, Esq., works as an Immigration Specialist of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar and has received numerous writing awards and has published essays dealing with cultural issues in literary magazines including America's Intercultural Magazine.
