Review

This charming collection of very personal essays by writers, artists, scholars, and filmmakers who have considered, and in most cases enrolled in, MFA and Ph.D. programs does the great service of offering no generalized advice. Once you finish the forty or so short pieces, you will certainly like almost all of these interesting and accomplished people. You will remember their funny, self-deprecating lines. You will appreciate their candor about failure. You will note the ubiquity of good luck in the stories by the few tenured scholars who contributed. You might even, as I did here, yearn to spin your own myth about the inspiration and perspiration of graduate school. But if you are considering grad school, you will not find your answer here. And that's a good thing. (BOOKFORUM)

5.0 out of 5 stars but it is also an excellent collection of personal essays 27 Aug. 2014
By Jesse Bogner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not only a helpful guide to the all-too-common question of whether or not one needs grad school, but it is also an excellent collection of personal essays. The writers are candid, self-deprecating and very impressive. They are also exceedingly likable storytellers. Maybe it would be better say the book doesn't answer questions, but gives one a breadth of experiences which you are then able to relate to your own life. The best quality of the book is that it allows for you to discern whether or not you need more education to pursue your dreams in creative fields.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read for anyone who's confronting the grad-school quandary 6 July 2014
By Axel Foley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A great read for anyone who's confronting the grad-school quandary. The selected authors don't give a simple thumbs up or thumbs down to the big question; they carefully consider everything that goes into making a decision, putting it into the wider context it deserves. Highly recommended.
