I have never met a book I did not like........until now. The author of this book NEVER actually makes a point.

Here is my summary. Every discipline within a university has different criteria for choosing research studies and research candidates. There is no consistency to how this is done even within similar departments at different universities. Peer reviewers avoid litigation by striving to be politically correct when making their decisions. The end!

The book is very helpful but in reality, you get good ideas but all professors are individuals so you still have to be careful

Excellent, well thought, and well written. One star less just because of how depressing it is the mixture of conformity and self-defense that seems to characterize academics.

Informative book for academics from all disciplines. Lamont studies how academics make decisions in real life. The context of the investigation is the expert panel work that some academics do on behalf of funding agencies in social sciences and humanities. So readers from those fields interested in getting funding should find the book as a useful tool.
