"A truly fascinating study. It shows why and how individuals can make a difference, and why background is not everything. But it also should give universities pause, because how they treat students really matters--and not always in the ways that they assume."--Baroness Alison Wolf, Sir Roy Griffiths Professor of Public Sector Management, King's College London "These fascinating interviews with 15 young men as they progress through their university experience suggest ways of resolving the age-old problem of under achievement by white working class boys. A must-read study."--Carol V. Robinson, Dr Lee's Professor of Physical Chemistry, University of Oxford
