Editorial Reviews


"We have a high school senior who is now applying and getting ready for college. Amy Baldwin and Brian Tietje's book will be essential for our daughter, for parents, and for parents and prospective college students everywhere. It focuses clearly and practically on all the really big issues young adults need to know about if they want to succeed in college, and the authors provide valuable tips and guiding questions, real-life student scenarios that so many parents will immediately recognize, and resources, like recommended readings, that will all parents to really help their students when they need it most. We will be discussing these helpful ideas with our daughter vigorously and often--they should help her immensely as she embarks on the great adventure that is a college education."--Paul Smith, educational publisher and parent

"Whether you are an adult responsible for the care of a college-bound student or a student preparing for life after high school, the wisdom conveyed in this book is worthy of your time. Baldwin and Tietje do a phenomenal job of weaving together stories that highlight expectations, anxieties and various emotions associated with moving into adulthood. This book not only provides a wealth of practical tips and advice for you and your student, but also an annotated list of resources for a deeper dive into a variety of related topics. Straightforward yet stylistically engaging, a core message delivered by this little gem is that self-awareness, self-efficacy and a growth mindset are key ingredients to a successful journey - a message for anyone in college and beyond!"--Sande Johnson, project manager and parent

"Reading the table of contents let me know that this could be a valuable book; reading the book itself let me know that this is an invaluable resource. As a college planner and former college instructor, I know how important it is for students to be ready for college--not just academically, but socially and personally as well. Two of my own children were academic all stars--National Merit Scholars and test-taking masters--but socially unprepared for college. It was no surprise that they dropped out. I wish I'd had this book back then!" -Donna Hill, Owner, My Class 101--Little Rock, Benton, and Bryant and parent
