All of the various publications written by FIRE are an excellent beginning resource to teach people how to recognize, debate, and refute many of the politically correct restrictions schools are applying against people in the academic setting. One of the most satisfying sights you will ever see is when you use the arguments in these books on the school administrators and they realize they are wrong, have been caught, and are now exposed. Truth is the strongest argument in the world!

3 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A College Parent on November 23, 2004
Format: Paperback
The information in this guide is good. But it seems to be written for lawyers and other professionals, because it's almost unreadable. Really, really dry stuff. I suppose it's hard to make this kind of thing interesting, so I didn't expect it to be fun. But this failed at making the information even palatable.

If you're in an absolute bind (meaning facing a hearing that could result in getting kicked out of school) then maybe it's worth it. Otherwise, give it the skip. It's not what I'd call "pleasure reading."
