About Book

From Library Journal
This is unique in the "how-to-get-into-college" genre for several reasons. First, it is written by an accomplished essayist and a distinguished conservative economist who is currently a Senior Fellow of the Hoover Institution. Second, it is, in part, a provocative critique of American higher education, or more specifically of the quality of teaching and curriculum--arguing, for instance, that at some schools interdisciplinary courses have "degenerated into rap sessions." Third, it provides students with solid rationale on how to evaluate their options, which abound, but require careful and pragmatic analysis. The book includes an examination of how higher education institutions differ in kind and approach, although the best parts are those that help to distinguish what constitutes good teaching. Recommended as an alternative to the sometimes dull offerings on this subject.
