“Sage advice”

April 12, 2011

From Stephen Walsh of

Andrew Ferguson makes the college admissions process feel a lot like an M. Night Shyamalan movie: Plenty of drama and tension. Maybe a little terror. And plot twists that will leave parents saying, “I did not see that coming.”

Ferguson’s new book, “Crazy U: One Dad’s crash course Into Getting His Kid Into college” is part comic memoir and part parental prep guide.

But with all the sage advice on navigating the potholes and mazes of college admissions, “Crazy U” also is a poignant read about parents helping their beloved son leave home and find success at a decent school.
