    The book is wonderfully easy to read but full of great advice. The chapters are organized like a series of pep talks with lots of clear, easy-to-follow tips. I especially liked the links to actual admissions videos kids have created, which Max, the author/dad intersperses throughout the book, and which he uses to illustrate both the technical and editorial points he makes. I read it on my ipad, but if you wanted to read it in hard copy, Max gives you search terms you canuse on google.

If you are a kid headed for college in a few years, or the parent of one (as I am), check out this book. Even if you don't make an admission video, it's a great way to find out what all the fuss is about and see lots of excellent examples of admission videos.

    As the mother of a junior in high school, I found this book to be incredibly helpful! Anything to differential yourself from the "pack" can create that tipping point. Because the generation going to college now is so fluid with and in front of a video camera, it makes total sense. I mentioned this book to a college advisor at a large meeting and he whole heartily endorsed the concept of video interviewing - although, had I not brought it up, it never would have been mentioned to the 100 parents As the mother of a junior in high school, I found this book to be incredibly helpful!

Looking for an edge? This may just be the ticket to the college or university of your dreams!
