Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In no uncertain terms Sowell reminds academicians that some ‘interdisciplinary fields’ have disintegrated into ‘rap sessions’ devoid of discipline. Choosing a College should be required reading for every college-bound person. The book is an eye opener even for college-wise educators.” Library Journal
