Lost in the Meritocracy: The Undereducation of an Overachiever by Walter Kirn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Superb. It is common for reviewers to say that this chapter or that was worth the price of some book or other, but this book, full of brutal honesty about academic posturing, has multiple metaphors that were worth the price of the book. Man, can Walter Kirn write.
