Malcolm Gauld presents five rules for college success. I have a sixth: read this book. College Success Guaranteed is small in size, but big in insight and wisdom. Gauld knows teens and it shows. -- Steven Antonoff, PhD, educational consultant, Antonoff Associates, Inc., Denver, CO
Loved the "Old School Wisdom" in this book and can't wait to send it to my grandchildren on the eve of their departure to college. Well-said! -- Patrick F. Bassett, president, National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS)
College Success Guaranteed is what I call a 'wow' book-it's written in a readable, relaxed, conversational style. Packing a lot into its few pages, this book follows what I call 'the 60 rule.' It will take no more than 60 minutes to read, but its 'invisible ink' has rules for success far beyond a student's college career that will last for 60 years. -- Louis Schmier, professor of history, Valdosta State University
This country makes a lot of noise about getting more kids into college. But, a much better goal is to help more students have a great college experience. Ultimately, students will be the ones who will determine the quality and value of that experience. This book is a fun, readable, and insightful handbook for every student -- Bob Stuart, independent college counselor and director, Maine College Circle
Malcolm Gauld has crafted a book that should be required reading for all those high school students who are bent on getting a first-class college education. It should also be required reading for all those students' teachers, counselors, and, oh yes, their parents. -- Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, University of Southern California
With college costs soaring, it's critical that today's students enter college with a plan for their success.

The lessons focus on the idea that attitude is everything in college....Even the most talented students will struggle in college if they lack confidence, the ability to seek out mentors, and emotional independence from their parents. * Staten Island Parent *
