My daughter was very concerned about the amount of debt she is incurring to attend university. My husband has been able to help with room and board at the university of her choice but she must cover the rest. After reading this book, she no longer frets about the cost and she is more earnest about making sure she is doing all she can to make the best of her situation. She is asking more questions and taking a more active role in her educational decisions. I believe this book is also helpful for older folk who are wondering if a college education is right for them. Sadly, my high school age son would only scan it!
