Praise

“Passionate, important… Berlinerblau writes eloquently about the goal of ‘thoughtfulness’ as the quality that good teachers most want to encourage in their students.”THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“Berlinerblau’s book often reads like a comic campus novel”—COMMENTARY

“Berlinerblau has done the world he clearly loves a real service, and this book is nice tonic to our complacency as professors.”—STEVE ROSS, ESSAYS IN PHILOSOPHY

“With remarkable clarity, the book has articulated how professors feel separated from the mainstream, rather than being integral to it.…His book therefore is narrated with hard-earned wisdom and he has alerted the world of academics, on flaws, which need to be addressed in the realms of higher education.”
THE STATESMAN

“I know of no book that details the rituals and customs of the academic habitat so concretely–and entertainingly, too. But this is more than a high-quality piece of arch observation.  Beneath the droll vignettes runs an earnest faith we absolutely must sustain: liberal education and the teachers who purvey it are crucial to civil society and enlightened culture.  If we allow the noble practice of teaching to deteriorate, Berlinerblau rightly insists, we jeopardize all the other things we hold dear.”
—Mark Bauerlein, author of The Dumbest Generation
