"...This book provides the kind of advice academic staff would want to offer if they could and gives boundless reassurance to parents who might be ‘too’ close to be able to help at the time. Perhaps most importantly, it offers students an immediate sense of not being alone, not being the only person to experience such fears, anxieties and stresses and instils the capacity to deal with the in ways that will, hopefully, provide them with learning for life."
