This book review analyzes Jon McGee's Breakpoint, highlighting the importance for higher education institutions to understand their position amidst demographic, economic, and cultural changes. McGee's position as a college administrator and father of a prospective college student offers a unique lens in which to investigate the broader context affecting colleges and universities. Data is strategically incorporated throughout the book, drawing from numerous demographic and economic trends affecting students and institutions. McGee does not promote a singular solution to challenges facing institutions today, but emphasizes applying an informed prospective towards leadership. This is an ideal resource for college administrators and those who work in higher education, as well as prospective students and families who seek an informative guide to the modern higher education marketplace.
