Interesting deconstruction of higher education -- where it has been, where it is, and where it is heading. While scathing in its criticism of how many colleges and universities currently operate, the overall tone is optimistic, impressive in a reform-minded book. It mixes ideology with practicality and gives detailed notes on what to watch for and how to navigate the system. With all the do-it-yourself open courseware available, you have no excuse for not studying whatever, whenever, and wherever your heart desires (unless, of course, you actually want a degree at the end -- that part isn't coming along quite as quickly). Now I'm off to explore those free courses . . .
