What do you get when you combine an award-winning humorist, a Ph.D. and the mom of a college-bound kid? You get Dr. Nancy Berk and her new book, College Bound and Gagged: How to Help Your Kid Get into a Great College Without Losing Your Savings, Your Relationship, or Your Mind.

Prime Parents Club College Bound Gagged Nancy Berk

Nancy, who has been described as “Dr. Phil meets Tina Fey,” used the skills of a therapist, researcher and professor to churn out what is being touted as the go-to guide for parents of college-bound kids.

“College Bound and Gagged” is the straight-talking survival guide for anyone who needs to rein in their high school student or the crazy process. If you need the inside scoop on how to get the job done, but don’t have time for 300 pages of dry facts, or you’re searching for a little comic relief when it seems like there’s nothing to laugh about, you’re in the right place.

Whether you have a little one who won’t be there for a few years or a kid currently embroiled in the conflicts of college life, this book will help you prepare with both insight and humor by covering topics like procrastination, competitive parents, test anxiety, campus tours, admissions office disasters and so much more.

If you hate academia speak and need just down-to-earth info (mixed with some awesome comedy), this book is for you.

Nancy contributes to Chicken Soup for the Soul, and also writes for The Huffington Post, USA Today, and MORE Magazine. Her other book, Secrets of a Bar Mitzvah Mom,was released in 2005. Nancy has been spotlighted in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, and MSN. In 2010, she was one of the winners of the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition.
