    About the Author

    Edward B. Fiske is the founder and editor of the Fiske Guide to Colleges. A former Education Editor of the New York Times, Fiske is known around the world for his award-winning writing on topics ranging from trends in American higher education to school reform in Southeast Asia, New Zealand and South Africa.

    The guide was established in 1982 when, covering higher education for the Times, Fiske sensed the need for a publication that would help students and parents navigate the increasingly complex college admissions scene. The guide, an annual publication, immediately became a standard part of college admissions literature and it is now the country''s best-selling college guide.

    Fiske has teamed up with his wife, Helen F. Ladd, a professor at Duke University, on several major international research projects regarding the development of education in various countries. Together, they are co-editors of the Handbook of Research in Education Finance and Policy, the official handbook of the American Education Finance Association. Fiske''s journalistic travels have taken him to more than 60 countries on behalf of the U.S. Agency for International Development, UNESCO and the Asia Society.

    Born in Philadelphia, Fiske graduated from Wesleyan University summa cum laude, and received master''s degrees in theology from Princeton Theological Seminary and in political science from Columbia University. He is a regular contributor to the International Herald-Tribune. In addition to the New York Times, his articles and book reviews have appeared in Atlantic Monthly, Chronicle of Higher Education, Los Angeles Times, and other national publications.

    A resident of Durham, North Carolina, Fiske serves on a number of boards of non-profit organizations working for access to college and international understanding. He is also a founding member of the board of the Central Park School for Children, a charter school in Durham.

    Bruce G. Hammond was editor in chief of The Insider''s Guide to the Colleges and was managing editor of four editions of The Fiske Guide to Colleges. He is the author of Discounts and Deals at the Nation''s 360 Best Colleges and is the school and college expert at Parent Soup, a division of iVillage.com.

    Very well written and informative. I thought this book might be a waste of time since I''m not new to the college process, but it wasn''t. The book was actually hard to put down.

    I love the concise overview at the beginning of the book. For me, it cuts to the chase my most burning questions, a chapter on "FAQ", if you will.
    Check it out.

    Despite having read more than a dozen college admission books, the ''Fiske Guide to Getting Into the Right College'' still had a lot to offer in terms of unique content (hence the 2 stars). While appreciating this fact, the unmistakable biases of the authors show through in several places. Sample the choice of words used while describing different categories below: "The alumni office will lobby for the son of their recent million-dollar donor; the football coach will fight for the three hundred-pound noseguard he covets; the multicultural affairs coalition will be rioting in the streets if the number of minority students goes down." Lobby, fight and riot in the streets - these word choices, not spur of moment extempore speech but carefully considered, edited, reviewed, and published word choices, perfectly encapsulate their unmistakeable biases towards certain groups. In a way, it offers a view into the mindset that some people possess on US campuses, towards those that do not belong to the majority demographic.
