"Written in a lively style but carrying a wallop, this is a book that family and educators cannot afford to overlook as they try to navigate the treacherous waters of college admissions." -Kirkus -


"For students, parents, teachers, and everyone else suffering during the college admissions process, Frank Bruni offers an outstanding resource. Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be is a thought-provoking look at how the system works-and a fresh, reassuring reminder of what really matters in the college experience."-Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home -


"The supposition that intelligence can be measured, that success can be predicted, and that the combination of the two creates happiness is rightly exploded in this sharply observed and deeply felt book.  In deconstructing the college admissions process, Frank Bruni exposes the folly by which enfranchised people measure their own lives.  He speaks with a voice of urgent sanity."-Andrew Solomon, National Book Award-winning author of Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity-


"For any adolescent sweating college admissions--and perhaps more critically, for any parent sweating college admissions--this book is required reading.  With systematic, soothing precision, Bruni amasses evidence that lives up to his title, showing readers that there are thousands of paths to success in this world, only one of which is ivy-strewn, and that the fetish we've made of marquee-name colleges is as practically misguided as it is psychologically destructive. The result is a beta-blocker and eye-opener all rolled into one, certain to allay the anxious and enlighten the curious-particularly when April rolls around."-Jennifer Senior, bestselling author of All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood-
