From the Introduction to Cool Colleges
...The most important part of research is passion. My passion for this topic, choosing the right college when you are hyper-intelligent, self-directed, late blooming, or just plain different, carried me across a full decade of inquiry. My first vision of this book was that I'd design a methodology to identify cool, and then list and describe the "most cool" colleges in some ordinal ranking until I got to a reasonable number of schools or pages, whichever came first. I naively blundered into this endeavor expecting it to be easy. It proved very difficult after all, and in the end, this book became a hobby worked on over a ten-year span.
...I hope you find your college, too, a perfect place for you, a place where you'll be happy, excited, welcomed, appreciated, and productive, a place that will launch you into the rest of your life like a trampoline. You deserve this. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you good luck. I wrote this book for you.
