Packed with resources to help parents make sense of the college application process, conduct a college search, and help guide their child's completion of their college application.

Readers from around the world have praised its value to parents who want to make sense of the college gauntlet without hovering and taking control away from their children.
One reviewer has written: Stuart White's new book takes a unique focus on the role of the parent of one of the hundreds of thousands of overachieving high schoolers. Whereas most books are written for parents that micromanage and compel their children into the high achiever stereotype, Prof. White's book centers on a rather beautiful love story between him and his daughter as she went through the college admission process.
Another reader has written: Thank you for sharing your helpful guide to the college application process. I have read many articles and listened to many podcasts regarding the process, yet still learned more from your book… I appreciated your openness and candidness regarding helicopter parenting. I think it's important to include that advice in this book, as most people reading a book like this will lean toward the helicopter side of parenting.
The author's side by side journey with his daughter ended with her admission to Yale University.
