New excerpts from The Berkeley Book of College Essays

Are you or your children looking to get a head start on those pesky college admissions essays?

Stone Bridge Press has made a new series of excerpts--including complete, successful admissions essays--from The Berkeley Book of College Essays available online. Just go to the book page, click on "EXCERPT," and get ready to get inspired!

“This is a useful, provocative, and entertaining new book. It is radically different in wholesome ways from most of the other ‘How To’ essay books that crowd the bookstore shelves…. And it is a great cultural survey of Berkeley: female Boy Scouts, male dancers, you name it. What a great group of kids.”
--Jonathan Reider, Director of College Counseling at San Francisco University High School and former Admissions Officer at Stanford University
