Few people have as much experience helping students cope with college life as Douglas Stone, a long-time Harvard residential adviser and coauthor of Difficult Conversations, and Elizabeth Tippett, recent Harvard graduate and founding director of the university?s peer mediation program. In Real College, they join forces to help students deal with nightmare roommates, handle academic pressures, make smart choices about alcohol and sex, communicate with parents, and address all the other big issues that can make college as challenging as it is exciting. Stone and Tippett deliver insightful, pragmatic advice with humor and compassion, in a style that parents and students alike will appreciate. This is one book that no college student should be without.

Review:

Real College masterfully presents critical information on key topics in a format that is engaging and entertaining. -- Julie C. Lythcott-Haims, Dean of Freshmen, Stanford University

Every student affairs office should recommend it. -- Loren Pope, author of Colleges that Change Lives and Looking beyond the Ivy League

Extremely funny, astonishingly helpful. Every college student and college-bound high school senior should read it. Period. -- Henry C. Moses, Headmaster, Trinity School and former Dean of Freshmen, Harvard College

Remarkably well written, truly reader friendly, and full of good ideas. I highly recommend this book. -- Richard J. Light, Walter H. Gale Professor of Education, Harvard University, and author of Making the Most of College

Stone and Tippett address serious, substantive, and challenging issues with deep psychological wisdom. This book is superb 'must' reading. -- Charles Ducey, Ph.D., Director, Bureau of Study Counsel, Harvard's Center for Psychological and Learning Services
