Description:

Today, there is a huge income gap between college graduates and high school graduates. Yet, many young Americans still believe that "they don't need college" to get rich or get ahead. For every "self made millionaire" who skipped college, there are millions of high school graduates who will struggle financially for the rest of their lives. For about the same cost to buy and insure a "nice" new car, then drive it for four years, many young adult Americans could pay for a four year college degree instead. That degree then would earn them enough extra income on average to buy a new car for cash every two years for the rest of their lives! Take out a car loan or a school loan? It's a no brainer!Dr. Mike Santaniello, who drove a truck for fourteen years and was the first person in his family to attend college, destroys the myths about college. His book proves once and for all that going to college is "worth it" for almost everyone. Based on years of research on college students and their families, this book teaches parents and grandparents who are not college graduates what they could do to encourage their children to become successful college students. From over twenty five years of teaching, advising, and studying working college students, Dr. Mike then offers the aspiring college student inside information on how to excel in college and beyond.Helping working students succeedagainst the odds is my life's work.Let me help yours!
