Will College Pay Off? A Guide to the Most Important Financial Decision You’ll Ever Make

Peter Cappelli, read by Tom Perkins. Tantor Audio, , unabridged, 6 CDs, 7 hrs., $34.99 ISBN 978-1-4945-0988-0
Cappelli tackles a question on the minds of many parents and students: what is the value of a college education in the 21st century? His book dutifully explores a variety of complex issues that probe the nature of higher education and its contributions to the individual, while simultaneously weighing the more practical payoffs and pitfalls of secondary schooling in the United States. Voice actor Perkins reads with a deep, slightly nasal voice as he makes his way through Cappelli’s many different arguments and considerations, using pacing and emphasis to drive home points. The audio book gets a bit monotonous during the longer passages, when Perkins loses his momentum. But these moments are far and few in contrast to how often he keeps listeners’ ears attuned.
