This book takes Brown's theorizations of vulnerability and shame and applies them to leadership studies. This is timely, as leadership studies is odd at the moment, not managing the Global Financial Crisis, Brexit, Trump, the #metoo movement or Black ...more

On Literary Theory and Philosophy by Richard Freadman
Rate this book
Clear rating
This edited collection is worth reading for its historical value. Most of these debates about 'literary theory' exhausted themselves decades ago (thankfully). But this book emerged in 1991, from a conference held in 1989.

Dialectics in Social Thought by Geoffrey R. Skoll
Rate this book
Clear rating
An excellent book that explores the toughest of theory - for tough times. The 'present crisis' that punctuated this book - published in 2014 - was the Global Financial Crisis. But the exploration of the Marcuse-inspired double threats of commodificat ...more

Thinking about Higher Education by Paul Gibbs
Rate this book
Clear rating
A powerful and important book. What makes this edited collection so strong is that it is prepared to explore the nostalgic imagining of universities. In other words, scholars have constructed a nostalgic rendering of higher education, to which our cu ...more

A fine book. This is one of those monographs where I thought it would be OK. Perhaps interesting.

I wanted to love this book. I PhD graduate offering a view on the PhD 'journey.' The subtitle drew my attention - insight and guidance. Sadly, the book is mediocre at best and self-evident at worst.

Bend But Don’t Break by D’angelo Gatson
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a short book, but without a clear argument. Gatson has not paced his argument or the book. Before commencing the writing of a book, it is important to understand the arc of the argument and the structure of this argument. Bend but don't break ...more

Be Remarkable by Patrick King

This is a solid book. I was most impressed by the capacity to separate an event and the emotional response to the event. This book allows us to understand the space between an event and the interpretation, allowing the development of meanings we can ...more

Upgrade Your Life by Max Mason

I was not too enthusiastic about this book. The title did not bode well. Also 'mental toughness' sounds a bit too Dr Phil for me. But this was a powerful, productive and compelling book. It offers strong attention to process, rather than outcomes. I ...more
