Reviews and Comments:
"Self-University is a book with a heart, encouraging all of us to think of education as a life-long, self-initiated venture instead of a lifeless, institutionalized affair.
Marsha Sinetar, author, Elegant Choices, Healing Choices
"A fascinating discussion of self-education and psychology."
Allen Tough, The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education
The beauty of this book is that it is an authentic personal story, bursting with the excitement of self-discovery. It is not a pretentious, how-to-do-it book but a wide-eyed, how-I-did-it book.
Malcolm S. Knowles, Adult Learning Magazine

Self-University won the 1990, Publishers Marketing Association's Benjamin Franklin Award in the Self-Help/Psychology category.
