Read our interview on Literary Titan:

“Peter Klein’s focus on maximizing the outcome and potential of college expands his subject beyond the usual
‘how to’ realm and into areas of fostering achievement, discovery, and a life approach that will carry new
adults through and past their college years with routines that apply equally well to life.”

“A college education is no guarantee of a successful career or even a job in your preferred field.  That’s why this is a relevant book for our times.   I found it very educational and inspiring, and I recommend it to aspiring college applicants and students.”

“Zen and the Art of Navigating College is an indispensable guide that transcends the college landscape, resonating with readers at various stages of their career journey.”

-Literary Titan

“The result is a different kind of college educational overview that should be a graduation present to any college bound student who would take these lessons and run with them into life.

Libraries seeking materials that lend especially well to college bound book discussion groups should make Zen and the Art of Navigating College  a mainstay.”

-Midwest Book Review by Diane Donovan

Worth reading. Good advice on how young college students can adapt to reap the benefits of college and minimize the impact of its shortcomings.

Regarding the audiobook:

“Listeners hear only the narrator as they find themselves deeply involved with the material. Warren Brownley narrates with a smooth voice that matches the author’s words so closely it’s like hearing the advice straight from the source. As someone who has put a direct and understandable voice through several nonfiction titles, Brownley embraces Klein’s rich vocabulary and relatable metaphors with ease and conveys them clearly to readers. It’s easy to do household chores, a hobby involving your hands, or drive as Brownley relates Klein’s wisdom and insightful stories.”
