"Congratulations! You've gotten into college. Now put down the syllabus and pick up this book! Ellen Bremen's book is a must-read if you want to know how to make your college career a complete success." -- Chris Westfall, 2011 Elevator Pitch champion, MBA instructor Southern Methodist University, and author of The New Elevator Pitch
"Crossing wits with your superiors is never a good way to get ahead. "Say This, Not That to Your Professor: 36 Talking Tips for College Success" is an advisory guide for college students to form a better relationship with their professors, when to be friendly and when to own up to one's mistakes." -- Midwest Book Review
"Ellen is the Dear Abby of college professors, so respectful, and with amazing wisdom about the inner workings of college." --Vicki Davis, author of the award winning Cool Cat Teacher blog, Lifetime Television for Women, "The Balancing Act" blogger, and co-author of the upcoming Flattening Classrooms, Expanding Minds.
"Professors made a huge impact in my life and Ellen shows students how to make the most of these relationships to fuel their educational goals. This book is a must-read for every college student." --Isa Adney, author of Community College Success: How to Finish with Friends, Scholarships, Internships, and the Career of Your Dreams.
"I wish every one of my students would read this book! As a communication studies professor the best thing that I can say about this book is that it takes solid communication theory and puts it into an accessible format that will motivate students. The second best thing I can say about it is that this stuff works! I have been in many (probably most) of the situations that Ellen Bremen describes in her book and without a doubt she nails how I wish each student had handled the situation. She is clear and practical. I don't think talking to your professor should be a mystery, and now, thanks to "Say This, NOT That to Your Professor" it isn't! Highly recommend this book." --S. Proctor
"A must read for college students, professors, and parents of college students. Wow! Say This, NOT That to Your Professor could have a subtitle: How To Succeed in College With Hard Work and Better Communication. I wish a book like this had been available 30 years ago, because I said several of the "NOT that" types of things to teachers. This book gives real-world, practical examples of problems and offers solutions for them, along with background stories to give the reader insights into the other person's point of view. Every high school student who plans to go to college should read this book, and it should be required reading in new college student transition programs. Further, parents of high school and college students should read it so if our kids call when they are concerned, we can offer constructive suggestions to handle difficult situations. I have a copy of this for myself but will buy one for each of my high school kids to read now and take with them to college. Must buy. Must read. Must give to others to read." --Mary Biever
"Critical info for students entering college and graduates entering the work force. Professor Bremen's book is filled with information I wish I'd had when I first started college. Even as a non-traditional student, I find I still use her ideas and concepts about working successfully with a professor. This book, however, is valuable for more than just students entering college. As a former department head in business, I wish some of my employees would have used Professor Bremen's ideas about leaving excuses behind, acting like a grownup, taking personal responsibility for your actions, and communicating respectfully. This book, frankly, is not just about college success, it's about life success. It's about getting along with people, earning the respect of others, learning from your mistakes, and being a decent human being. Kudos, Professor Bremen!" --Don
