    Deresiewicz suggests that attention to some of the smaller liberal-arts schools which do still recommend attention to liberal arts is not just attractive but necessary, and it is high time that this sentiment was stated so overtly by such a literate and reputable writer.

    Even more unfortunate, because this is not yet perceived accurately, some of these same leaders often maintain the arrogance and narcissism that attends an utter lack of insight and an attachment to historical truths that, in the present time, no longer reflect reality.

    Some of the complaints under discussion seemed pretty eternal for the age group considered--not exactly exaggerated, but neither was it headline news.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Solutions such as public funding of higher education--something i'd support--were not particularly fresh; no innovative approaches are offered.

    I think every parent who wants their child to attend an ivy league school should read deresiewicz review of what exactly is wrong with driving children to excel in every aspect of their lives with the express purpose of attending an ivy.

    For the most part, they don't know.

    Perhaps because i'm too close to the subject matter, i found the defense of a liberal arts education in the second half of the book pretty self-serving.

    His likely audience is people who already value the liberal arts, otherwise they wouldn't be interested in the subject.
