It can sometimes seem as though teens think they know it all. In truth, this front they put up is merely a natural way for them to assert their independence from parents and develop their own personality. But as every parent of a teen is no doubt aware, the act can certainly get tiresome. And this is especially true when it comes to imparting the valuable advice that will help students to make the most of their time in college. Luckily, there is a resource that both parents and students can enjoy equally, and it is chock-full of advice that students need (hidden under the guise of humor and irreverence that many modern teens respond to). So if you’re looking for a way to broach the subject of sending your kids off to college in order to prepare them for all the hardships and hassles they might face along the way, consider ordering Gunnar Fox’s audio book ‘Kick Ass in College: A Guerilla Guide to College Success’ so that you can sit down and have a listen. It might not make your teens open up and have an honest conversation, but the hope is that something will get through.
Preparing teens for college is no easy feat. While most kids need the help of their parents for certain aspects, like planning (reading rankings, visiting campuses, filing applications, etc.) and payment, they’re not terribly willing to listen to advice regarding what they can expect when they actually get to campus. But unlike you, Gunnar Fox is a funny and entertaining guy. Okay, you might have a great sense of humor, but that won’t make your kids listen to you. Fox, on the other hand, presents vital information and advice in such a way that listeners (even teens) can’t help but laugh, relax, and let down their guard, letting the information sink in.
And Fox has opinions on everything from academic pursuits (study habits, good grades, and so on) to social interests like partying and finding love connections. And he has the experience and clout to back up his opinions, with plenty of academic honors to his name, not the least of which is that he served as the Associate Editor of the Stanford Law Review during his time in the program. So parents will no doubt appreciate his background and the fact that he is imparting the behaviors students need to earn top grades, compete in the job market after graduation, and enjoy a successful career. And students will like his overall tone of irreverence and his complementary focus on how to have fun while achieving success in college.
Whether he’s discussing guerilla study strategies and classroom competition or substance abuse and relationships, Fox keeps the pace lively and the tone engaging in his guide to the college experience. And whether you’re a parent hoping to use this book to garner information that you can impart to teens or you’re a student seeking admission to Harvard Law, ULCA, or Case Western University, Fox delivers a slew of helpful advice in an easy-to-digest format with his ‘Kick Ass’ audio book. As many reviewers have thus far attested, it’s an absolute must for any student that wants to succeed in college and beyond.
