Huge congratulations go out to my dear friend, Zac Bissonnette. Zac is one of my editors at WalletPop.com, and sophomore at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He just signed a huge book deal with Portfolio after a bidding war between 3 publishers.
The author, a college sophomore and co-editor of AOL’s WalletPop.com, will argue that American parents and their high school children need to rethink their approach to choosing and paying for college. Bissonette, who contends that most elite private colleges are overrated, is paying his own way through the University of Massachusetts at Amherst; he’ll show parents and students how to assess the value of a private versus public university degree, demonstrate the ramifications of saddling oneself with student loan debt and explain how students can use their college years to position themselves for long-term success.
What a great opportunity for a wonderful person who works hard and deserves all the success in the world!
