“Every single high school student (and her parents) should be required to read this book before applying to college.”—Seth Godin, author of Meatball Sundae
“If you’re considering college—or sending a child to college—this is the book you have to read first!”—Thom Hartmann, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host
“The cost of college is skyrocketing. Students are increasingly getting into hock—at rates they can’t afford—just to pay their bills. It’s a crisis made worse by the fact that almost no one is talking about it. Fortunately, Marc Scheer is, in No Sucker Left Behind, a must-read manual that tells us about this pernicious debt trap and what we can do about it.”—Danny Schechter, director of In Debt We Trust
“Every student and parent needs to read this book. I wish my son had read it before he went to college.”—Janne O’Donnell, Board of Directors, Americans for Fairness in Lending
The book that colleges don’t want you to read.
No Sucker Left Behind is the only book that blows the lid off colleges’ scandalous price-gouging schemes. Marc Scheer reveals colleges to be profit-obsessed businesses best approached with the wariness reserved for used-car salesmen. From the application process to the undergraduate years and all the way through graduate school, Scheer shows how universities trap students into high costs and unmanageable debt. Most important, he arms students with innovative tools to fight back and get a valuable degree for less.
Includes more than one hundred online resources for students.
