Book Description

Compiled in “real time” as one family went through the college search. Life’s Little College Admission Insights best selling author and his college bound daughter have compiled an easy to read, ingest and act on “insider” best in class tips to help make the college search easier right from the beginning! The book is intended to be a “jump starter” for collegiate research and to be used before you ever pick up one of the many wonderful, yet sometimes overwhelming college directories and guides on the market today. Top experts across the country were interviewed and have given many wise and different opinions on what’s important from their own first hand experience advising hundreds of thousands of students in their careers.
After a rigorous search and selection process, professional advisors and counselors were asked the same questions including:
* The one college tip that nobody ever seems to know about;
* The first piece of advice top counselors give their own children;
* The one piece of advice they have given that’s worked best;
* What students have to do differently today from even a year ago;
* And to add a little education to the process for college bound students, advice with an SAT word in it!
Eric and Cole Yaverbaum have also given a look into their own thought process during the search and include invaluable informational resources including where to look for financial aid, a detailed timeline for when to do what, test preparation information, athletics and even the sample essay Cole used on her applications to get into college.
While many adults look back on their college years as the best time of their life, nobody ever seems to say the same about the college application and selection process. Life’s Little College Admission Insights makes the search process as enjoyable and easy as possible from day one.
Enjoy the search!

About the Author

Cole Yaverbaum, age 17, is a student at Mamaroneck High School in Westchester County. A senior, Cole is currently in search of a college herself. She is a member of student council, the National Honor Society, and several other committees and clubs at her school. In her spare time she enjoys biking, reading, writing, and practicing piano. Although this is her first published book, she aspires to pursue her writing career in college.

Eric wrote the best-selling book I’ll Get Back to You. He is also the author of the first and second editions of Public Relations For Dummies, which is required reading in marketing classes at 57 universities in the United States. His third book, Leadership Secrets of the World’s Most Successful CEOs  has been translated into 13 languages. His last book, Everything Leadership, came out in May 2008. He is also a frequent talk-show guest on national and regional television and radio programs and networks, including CBS This Morning, Today, CNN, Larry King Live, Your World with Neil Cavuto, MSNBC, and CW11 and is currently a regular on Fox News’ Strategy Room.
Eric was an active member of the highly selective Young President’s Organization for over a decade, where he was the Chapter Chairman in New York City. His widely acclaimed “Walk a Mile in My Shoes” campaign helped push increased spending on stem cell research through the House and led to his being named one of the heroes of the public relations industry by Industry Bible PRWeek. Eric currently sits on the board of advisers for the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis, where he received the prestigious Water Cove Award in October of 2009.

This book probably isn't terrible, but I was expecting some sort of general college admissions process description written in parts by various people - what you have here is merely a collection of quotes from admissions counselors and other people on various subjects. It really is a "Life's Little..." sort of book, just a whole bunch of individual comments, sometimes complementing each other, sometimes contradicting each other. It's great to have a lot of perspectives on a subject, but the entire book is ONLY a lot of perspectives on a subject, with no real cohesion. When I saw the "Look Inside" samples I thought that was maybe the introduction, or "Quotes about this book", but it's really the main content of the book. So, check out the Look Inside stuff, and if you are on board knowing that's pretty much what it is, then go for it.

First, a disclosure. I am one of the college admissions counselors quoted in the book. But, if you want to get a jump start on finding the best college for you, this is the place to start. The book provides short quotes from college counselors that get right to the heart of finding the right college. The book is short and can be easily read in a hour. But that is the beauty of the book. No fluff, just great thoughts to help students. The other strong point of the book is that the advice given is appropriate for students looking at the most selective colleges as well as those looking to attend a local community college. Great first book if you are just starting the college admissions process.

This book gets right to the point. Clear, easy to read and concise, it is a must-have for anyone who is or who will be applying to college. Extremely useful for parents of college bound students as well. I work as a parent coach and have met countless parents who automatically assume that the college application process must be filled with stress, anxiety, rejection, confusion and countless hours of work. Not to mention that many of the books out there aimed to help parents and students through this process are longer and more complex than the actual process itself. Consequently, many parents and students feel defeated and end up in a negative mindset right from the start. The Yaverbaums not only clearly illustrate that it does not need to be this way, they communicate how the process can actually be enjoyable and consequently more successful. The pearls of wisdom and advice given from numerous guidance counselors throughout the country are brief in length yet offer inmeasurable amounts of practical tools, information and direction. I learned more useful tips for my soon to be college-bound daughter from two short paragraphs than I have from any other source so far. Very often with important information "less is more." This is certainly the case with this helpful book.
