Andrew Ferguson, a senior editor at the Weekly Standard and a columnist for Bloomberg News, is the author of Land of Lincoln and Fools' Names, Fools' Faces, a collection of his essays. He lives in Arlington, Virginia.
"A laugh-until-your-ribs-squeak book."
"Compulsively readable, unusually vivid . . . The most darkly humorous aspect of this often hilarious book is its depiction of an admissions process that corrupts everything it touches."
--Daniel Akst, The Wall Street Journal
"In Crazy U, Ferguson is at his dazzling best, using humor and narrative as portals to very serious subjects. The book is both a hilarious chronicle of his 18-month ordeal helping his not-always-cooperative son apply to college and a devastating expos of the buying and selling of higher education in America."
--Christina Hoff Summers, National Review
