Library Journal - Library Journal
This pragmatic title aims to help high school student athletes and their parents find their way through the confusing college athletic recruiting process. Emphasis is placed on improving the student's academic and athletic performance and on making college recruiters take notice. The book goes through the steps of writing to coaches, attending sports camps, making phone contacts, entertaining a home visit, and being invited for a campus visit. Walsh has been involved in the college sports arena in many capacities. He has been a college and pro athlete, a college coach, a recruiter, and now a prospective athlete's parent while running a successful consulting business in this field. Other than including too many plugs for that business here, his book offers a unique and valuable resource for school and public libraries.-John Maxymuk, Rutgers Univ. Lib., Camden, N.J.
