Off to College
A Guide for Parents
Roger H. Martin
“Parents should be knowledgeable about their youngsters’ challenges starting higher education. But just as important, [Martin] said, is letting young adults deal with their own problems on campus. It’s all part of ‘the growing up experience.’ … That philosophy infuses his book Off to College: A Guide for Parents … aimed at preparing parents for the empty nest, advising them on how to handle possible major crises such as students’ mental health problems and substance abuse while urging them to avoid micromanaging choices of academic majors or squabbles with messy roommates.”—LA Times

It won’t take long to absorb its chief lessons, and its citation guides, especially, will prove a lasting reference. The benefits of this book can endure long beyond freshman year.”—Community College Week, praise for the previous edition
