Crazy U, One Dad's crash course in getting his kid into college, by Andrew Ferguson, is an entertaining, fast read about his experience as a dad when his son was applying to college. Ferguson got really stressed out by a high-priced college consultant and worrying about his son's essay. He needed to hire a good college consultant more than anyone. He was stressed out, and his son left application and essay writing right until the application submission deadline. These are two things I could have helped him with, and prime reasons to hire a consultant. Read this book if you want a quick read about his experience, but this is not a guidebook that will relieve your stress or help you learn more about the process. Some of the sections are touching when he thinks about his son moving out.
