June 24, 1999; USA Today book review

"Most everyone recognizes the importance of a college education for earning a living; fewer acknowledge the importance of college in learning how to live a life," the authors write. College is about "discovering who you are." Includes musings on alcohol and sex, dealing with peer pressure and respecting diversity.

Author credentials: The parents of three adult sons, the Harveys, each with multiple academic credentials, served as resident fellows in an all-freshman dorm at Stanford University from 1988 to 1997.

Style: Philosophical, with liberal doses of personal and poignant reminiscences.

Sample tip: There are more words of wisdom than practical advice, but tips include "Don't let yourself or your parents use grades as a basis for identity or self-definition."

Handy features: Includes a short section on gaffes parents should avoid on move-in day, such as "When confronting the challenge of meeting (daughter) Carol's roommate, try not to appropriate every square inch of space for Carol's refrigerator, Carol's microwave, Carol's television, and Carol's VCR, particularly if Carol's roommate has not yet arrived."
