I enjoyed reading this book, partly because my youngest niece has gone through the admissions process this past academic year. Creating a Class reiterated what I already knew about the competitiveness of the admissions process, but it was interesting hearing it from an "outside insider." (The author is a professor who did a stint in Admissions.) I'd definitely recommend this book to people in academia, as well as parents interested in sending their children to a competitive school.
