"I enthusiastically endorse Hoffman's final suggestion to the reader: 'Buy a plane ticket to one of the strong VET countries, talk to employers, see young people at work, and decide for yourself whether the system performs as described here.' Before you travel, I whole-heartedly recommend that you read this book." -- Roland Osterlund, Center on International Education Benchmarking
"Well written and filled with excellent recommendations, this book is a must read for those concerned with how the US can better assist its young adults, employers, and the country alike in reforming the transition from school to work, ensuring a well-prepared workforce for the future." -- T. Gutteridge, CHOICE
"This book includes rich details that should be the source for such critical reflection, discourse, and action." -- Judith Parker, Teachers College Record
