Editorial Reviews

?Short, pithy articles from successful African-American educators cover the essentials for student success. From the first article on selecting the right school to the last on finding the right career, these selections cover student's fears, concerns, and questions. The highly readable book can be read in one sitting or in short sessions. Also included are pieces by successful students 'telling it like it is.' Best chapters are those that detail methods students can follow for success, including one written by a librarian who covers information skills.... Other topics that are well handled include choosing friends, peer relations and leadership, and learning to integrate with other cultures. This attractive book will be useful for junior and senior high school students who are serious about being successful in school.... Highly recommended.??The Book Report
