Product description

Review

Helen Sword does it again. In an age of academic doom, she inspires. Here she manages to be both data-driven and delightful: you have to read to see how she combines so much evidence and so much pleasure. She makes you want to consume creative academic writing - not just hers - and to try to produce nothing less. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Helen Sword is Professor and Director of the Centre for Learning and Research in Higher Education at the University of Auckland. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
