"This book is a valuable resource....The book not only deepens understanding about the experiences of Asian students, but it also prompts readers to be more aware of the nuances of the English language and the aspects of American culture and schooling that complicate adaptation for Asian students....The book demystifies stereotypes and counters "deficit" models by offering information and explanations for behaviors of Asian students that are too often misunderstood. It is an important contribution to the development of multicultural educaion."-Journal of Asian and African Studies
"Educators and academic advisors are encouraged to read this and other books written by and about Asian Americans. Regardless of student age level, educators working with Asian immigrant students will find this book a valuable reference tool."-NACADA JOURNAL
