Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book has a definite slant to it, but it a great primary on the state of higher education. As an administrator, I took a little offense at the standard "administrators are ruining higher ed" attitude, but I am used to faculty members washing their hands of the own sins in this manner.

I recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about Higher Ed.
