I was hoping that this book would be an interesting and insightful discussion of the problems with the higher education system, but unfortunately have found it not quite what I expected.
I had been prepared for the fact that the book is written from an entirely American perspective, which is fine, as it is an area in which the problems from that part of the world are definitely similar to those in the UK. However, rather than a learned discourse, what we really have is two academics bemoaning the younger generations and harking back to the good old days, without seemingly recognising the world, and with it students, has moved on. Disappointing.
