Product Details


“Carey elegantly blends policy analysis, reportage [and] memoir into a hard-charging indictment of the eggheads and ivory towers many Americans love to hate….Part alternative history and part road trip, the book is a tour guide to higher education…[A] readable and thoughtful book…[Carey has] a gift for finding fascinating characters and explaining complex ideas clearly.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Thorough … this is thought-provoking, fascinating material.”
The Washington Post

“In The End of College, Kevin Carey delves into some of the most complicated – and important – issues facing students, parents and educators today. This is a fascinating read.”
—Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

“Don’t even think about going to college (or paying for it) until you have read this book. Kevin Carey has changed forever how I think about the modern American university. The End of College delivers a scathing indictment of the past and present—alongside a glorious prediction for what comes next.”
—Amanda Ripley, author of The Smartest Kids in the World
