    1. Seriously, does anyone who gets a PhD in the humanities (and most of the social sciences) today and manages to get a TT position at a "teaching school" really feel like a failure? Has the author evaluated what it costs to buy private health insurance while an adjunct (whose "extreme situations" are considered outside the purview of The Academic Self). And does it take a PhD (in the humanities! the study of being human, for gosh sakes!) to realize that a) success in life cannot be "objectively ev [...]

    2. This one is a little hard for me to rate. I think that happens to me when I read non-fiction.Slight background: my professor mentioned this book several years ago as something she was interested in reading. The book came up as a topic of conversation and possible relevance during my first thesis defense (with my thesis including the topic of teachers as whole people who also have spiritual/faith-based identities). So the professor/my advisor lent me her copy.While Hall says that this book is use [...]

    3. This book kind of blows my mind. It's the ideal book for a graduate course in being an academic. Every intro to grad class should require it. I read the first chapter in a library book, but then immediately ordered it off .The general gist--coming from a literary studies background--is that we should be as close readers of ourselves and our institutions as we are of our literary texts. The other key perspective is one of "collective self-help"--as Donald E Hall himself says "Collective success i [...]

    4. This is an excellent and brief investigation of the psychology of the academic self. It is a self-help book designed for those who set the bar very high and try to be all things to all people. Most helpful is the first chapter on "self" wherein the author calls academics to examine their own insecurities.

    5. Been sitting on my shelf since I left teaching at the university level. Started to pick it up again today in a rush to pick up a book to pass time at a coffee shop. Ended up finishing the book. Dr. Hall's book is filled with amazing insights regarding the culture in the academia. It's filled with analysis as well as practical genius tidbits like time management and goal setting.
