Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is long overdue! At last two professionals have combined qualitative research, experience, interviews, and site visits to produce a practical guide for college bound students and their families. It is an easy read filled with commonsense strategies every decision maker in today's economy needs to reach the appropriate site 'match.' Hats off to these two—they hit the bull's-eye!"  —George de Lodzia, PhD, professor emeritus of business administration, University of Rhode Island

"A unique and impressive volume that can serve readers who want to use personality type as one of the tools for understanding and choosing a college."  —Charles Martin, PhD, author, Looking at Type and Careers

"A book giving students the tools to discover their best college match. By opening any given page, the student will get a bull's-eye view of the college of his/her dreams." —Sue Bigg, MPH, CEP, educational consultant
