DANIEL GOLDEN is the Pulitzer winning journalist and former Deputy Bureau Chief at the Boston bureau of The Wall Street Journal. He won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting for "compelling and meticulously documented stories on admission preferences given to the children of alumni and donors at American universities." In 2010, his reports about the questionable recruiting practices of for-profit colleges resulted in Congressional hearings where his story was read in its entirety into the Congressional record and for which he won the George Polk award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. He is current editor-at-large for Bloomberg News/Business Week and working on his next book to be published by Henry Holt.
