Editorial Reviews

Review

“This charming collection of very personal essays by writers, artists, scholars, and filmmakers . . .does the great service of offering no generalizable advice. Once you finish the forty or so short pieces, you will certainly like almost all of these interesting and accomplished people. You will remember their funny, self-deprecating lines. You will appreciate their candor about failure. You will note the ubiquity of good luck in the stories by the few tenured scholars who contributed. . . . But if you are considering grad school, you will not find your answer here. And that's a good thing.” ―Bookforum

Format: Paperback
This book is not only a helpful guide to the all-too-common question of whether or not one needs grad school, but it is also an excellent collection of personal essays. The writers are candid, self-deprecating and very impressive. They are also exceedingly likable storytellers. Maybe it would be better say the book doesn't answer questions, but gives one a breadth of experiences which you are then able to relate to your own life. The best quality of the book is that it allows for you to discern whether or not you need more education to pursue your dreams in creative fields.

Format: Paperback
A great read for anyone who's confronting the grad-school quandary. The selected authors don't give a simple thumbs up or thumbs down to the big question; they carefully consider everything that goes into making a decision, putting it into the wider context it deserves. Highly recommended.
