Crazy U: One Dad's Crash Course in Getting His Kid Into College, by Andrew Ferguson
Well done, funny, and fascinating look at what getting into college (and why, and how much it will cost) means to a family today. The meaninglessness of entrance requirements, the questionable value of the rankings systems, and the alarming rising costs all come to be overshadowed by this father's desire to help his son Get In.
Great read, with a lot to think about.
