I love this book. Every college and university should have this book, in numbers, in their libraries, bookstores, and career centres. Every school guidance counsellor should have one. And every parent should purchase a copy for their child as a precious gift on the day of graduation. I have just ordered two copies for my two children who plan to graduate next year.‘ Professor Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor University of the Free State
