Long shelf life as it covers pre-school to high school. Lay out is easy on the beginner and filled with all kinds of questions and answered in an advantage/disadvantage style. The book allows you to look at both sides of many issues and in doing so calculate the personal needs of the reader.
This manual will take you from, what will other people think? to the history behind homeschooling and forward to present day. Very well done and sure to address all your concerns and questions about homeschooling. The appendix lists so much more information and even includes a list of colleges that have accepted homeschooled students.
An excellent tool in answering all your fears and concerns about homeschooling!
There is a great list in the back called "Colleges that have accepted homeschoolers" which is almost 15 pages long and includes several impressive names, like Harvard and Stanford. That itself should be enough to quell the anxiety in Grandma's beating heart!
However, if you are looking for a nuts and bolts, how-to manual with lots of detailed instructions, samples and ideas, I suggest you look elsewhere. This book is way too general and many of its resources are outdated.
