Jason Wray''s comments about typos are out of date. Because of the media attention we received while the book was being written, it was rushed into print and unfortunately the editors overlooked several typos. We apologize to readers of this first printing. The book is now into its fourth printing and the typos have been corrected. A French edition will be released soon.
That having been said, I think this book needs to be revised a little. I was disappointed to have been wrapped up in a passage only to get derailed by a missing word or a misspelling (the sort you find in a word processor, where it is a word, just not the right one).

While the book is a little dense at times -- after all, it was writted by two sociology professors - it should be required reading for all parents about to send their children to college.
