If knowledge is power, then Michael Singer Dobson's newest book is a powerhouse. The labyrinthine service academy appointment process has rightly earned a mystique that seems daunting to the young people who dare to venture onto that path. Armed with the well-organized, thorough, and complete information offered in How to Get Into a Military Service Academy, those aspiring soldiers and sailors will find that the maze is navigable after all. Dobson's work sheds light on every step of the process, from the first expression of interest to the moment of entering the ranks of either of America's service academies.
