Harlan Cohen’s Happy, Healthy, Almost Stress-Free College Planning & Success: For Parents and Students
College is a BIG change — it’s a dramatic change with new challenges most students and parents never see coming. As a result, millions of students are struggling. New York Times bestselling author of the #1 book on college life, Harlan Cohen (The Naked Roommate: And 107 Other Issues You Might Run Into in College and The Naked Roommate: For Parents Only!) helps students and parents know what’s coming and how to create the best college experience. Harlan exposes and explores the latest facts, stats, and strategies to guide high school and college students as they navigate all the changes ahead. He helps parents and grandparents know how they can be the best partners along the way. Harlan uses his trademark humor, personal anecdotes, and interactive style to engage audiences of all ages.
