Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a Harvard alum, I was eager to get my hands on this book. The reality, however, is much less than the promise, especially coming from one of the world's best university presses. The coverage is not especially broad or deep. Instead, one finds a moderately full selection of moderately informative entries on the better-known aspects of Harvard. It's also far from mistake-free (to give one small example, the protagonist in the movie "With Honors" did, contrary to what A to Z says, have a copy of his thesis on his computer, but his computer was fried).
All in all, this has the feel of something produced for the tourist trade. It's too bad that it has the Harvard U. Press's imprint on it.
