Mark Kantrowitz is a rock star when it comes to helping families pay for college. Twisdoms about Paying for College, which offers decades' worth of smart, insider advice, is a must-read for parents, students, and high school counselors alike. No one knows the score better than Kantrowitz -- the go-to expert on all things related to making college more affordable.
-- Beth Kobliner, Author of "Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even if You're Not)" and member of the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans
Mark Kantrowitz shares his encyclopedic knowledge of college financial aid in this pithy, readable book. I highly recommend it to any parent who hopes to get help with the college bills.
-- Jane Bennett Clark, Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine
The Color of Money book of the month, by Mark Kantrowitz, offers financial proverbs for families sending a child to college. He is the go-to guy for insight into scholarships, grants and student loans. He's condensed his expertise into "twisdoms" -- tweetable wisdoms. Despite the brevity of the advice, there's a lot of meat in this 112-page paperback. In a time when people have increasingly short attention spans, I love this book's concept. Kantrowitz takes a complicated and often frustrating process and breaks it down to essential information.
-- Michelle Singletary, Washington Post
Mark Kantrowitz is the expert other experts turn to when they have questions about paying for college. His knowledge of financial aid is broad and deep, but he manages to make an incredibly complex process understandable to the rest of us. I plan to use his 'twisdoms' when it's time to put our child through college.
-- Liz Weston, Personal Finance Columnist and Author of "Your Credit Score"
Like a Twitter feed, Kantrowitz's 'Twisdoms' let you quickly spot something you didn't know about the student loan or scholarship process. And more important, you'll be motivated to read a little bit more and dig deeper into the topic. Before you know it, you might even save some real money and avoid financial heartache.
-- Susan Tompor, Personal Finance Columnist, Detroit Free Press and USA Today
