Críticas:

Beautifully vivid and well-written, "The PhDictionary" pulls back the curtains of higher education to those of us, like myself, who have come to the academy from first generation, blue-collar families. Childress delivers a valuable view of the organizational landscape by blending human stories with national trends and wisdom from the field. Balancing the unforgiving realities of faculty life in higher education today with a good dose of humor, this book is an important addition to the Straddler s library for those new to the field and anyone who mentors them. --Jeanne Mekolichick, assistant provost for academic programs and professor of sociology at Radford University" This book is very funny. Though not a satire, at times it feels like Gulliver describing Yahoos in the land of Houyhnhnms: the perspective of outsider-to-outsider allows for some laugh-out-loud observations about the world of higher education. New or prospective faculty will find it helpful, even reassuring, to have the stresses and occasional daffiness presented with such accuracy and candor. --Ken O Donnell, senior director of student engagement and academic initiatives & partnerships at California State University" An offbeat, original, and witty take on surviving graduate school and the professor track. Childress's book will be especially useful for first in family academics who have no previous experience with our peculiar profession. --David D. Perlmutter, professor and dean of the College of Media & Communication at Texas Tech University and author of Promotion and Tenure Confidential" "This book is very funny.

Reseña del editor:

Navigating academia can seem like a voyage through a foreign land: strange cultural rules dictate everyday interactions, new vocabulary awaits at every turn, and the feeling of being an outsider is unshakable. For students considering doctoral programs and doctoral students considering faculty life, The PhDictionary is a delightful and lighthearted companion that illuminates the often opaque customs of academic life.
With more than two decades as a doctoral student, college teacher, and administrator, Herb Childress has tripped over almost every possible misunderstood term, run up against every arcane practice, and developed strategies to deal with them all. Wry and knowledgeable, he is the perfect guide for anyone hoping to scale the ivory tower.

In The PhDictionary, Childress pairs current research with personal stories to explain 150 key phrases and concepts graduate students will need to know (or pretend to know) as they navigate their academic career. FromABD to white paper and with terms like buyout, FERPA, gray literature, andsoft money in between, each entry contains a clear definition and plenty of relevant advice. The book can be read cover to cover or kept on hand as a reference for consultation and commiseration.

Often funny, sometimes sobering, and always enlightening, The PhDictionary lays open what current and prospective graduate students are walking into, with encouragement on how to  position themselves for the contest ahead. The book is equally frank with faculty members and administrators on their responsibilities to the new generation of students. While academia may always be a second language, this book provides the insider’s guide to faking it until making it.
