While the book is chocked full of advice a college student will probably need, it is text-heavy and visually less than appealing to its intended audience: 18 to 21-year-olds. I think parents will look at this book and think about how practical it is and how they will feel better about letting go just knowing all this helpful information is at their kids' fingertips. And that would be great, if kids would take the time to read it and refer back to the appropriate sections when they need help. Maybe it would be best for parents to read it, then discuss it with the kids a little at a time before they even leave for college.
For those grown kids who are committed to learning as much as they can about this huge step towards independence, and the parents who guide them, this book is an excellent source of information. 50 Ways to Leave Your Mother
In many areas, this text is larger and more thorough than comparable college survival guides. It provides an extensive packing list; it gives students many tips on using credit cards; it describes many forms of birth control in detail.
What this guide lacks is personality. Comparable books are made more interesting with anecdotal inserts from college students. This guide contains none.
Overall, I can't recommend this more or less than comparable guides. It is more thorough; its lacks anecdotes. Choose as you please.
