I wouldn't recommend.
This author is under the impression that all white students have advantages like personal tutors for SAT prep etc. He believes that minority students deserve extra "points" so to speak, in the admissions process because they are disadvantaged. I resent this line of thinking because my son is a white student who will be applying to college next year, and we most definitely can NOT afford a tutor, or any of the other advantages he refers to. Not all white students are rich, and conversely, not all minority students are poor. There is much too much stereotyping in this book. The author also focuses all of his "journeys" in the book on minority students ONLY.
