Book of the Year for the Student Population
PRLog - Apr. 19, 2012 - WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Institute for Financial Literacy announced at its annual awards ceremony in Orlando last night that Rand Media Company’s unique book was named Book of the Year for the student population.

This book is about life skills  – the development of those habits and traits that line the path to success.  The book includes 9 Topics:

YOU, Inc., Communication Skills, Financial Literacy, Career Advancement/Networking, Investing, Personal Development, Time Management & Productivity, Sales & Persuasion Techniques, Savvy

Critics have raved about the book commenting on its visual format, “less is more” delivery, and entertainment value.

Several major universities have purchased books for graduating seniors including, most recently, George Mason University (Virginia), Portland State University (Oregon), and Trinity University (Connecticut).

Here is what one administrator had to say:

“Presenting the book to our graduating seniors with their diplomas
was extremely well received by both graduates and their parents.
I predict this book will be widely successful with graduates, parents,
and universities.”
 Sean Heffron/Director Student Experience, Sacred Heart University
