"This text has proved to be exactly what our students need. We are a two-year Ag and Tech college in the SUNY system, and as such, we have many adults who are re-training after downsizing. I also incorporate information from Siebert’s The Survivor Personality in our discussions. No other textbook comes close to the practical needs of our students."
Kathy Sellars, Adult Students Services
State University of New York – Morrisville

"This is a practical book for helping students achieve a balance between their already existing life and the demands of attending college."
