Review:

?This book provides a fairly balanced examination of the milieu, attitudes, feelings and options of displaced academics. Abel makes a statement about the role of work as a form of self-expression about the meaning of professionalism and about how failure affects the displaced academic. Intermising statements from the interviewees with statistics from other sources, the author presents a fascinating picture of the tribulations of the displaced academic.... This book is worth reading, not only to gain greater empathy for colleagues who failed to find purchase on the ivory tower but also to learn about the less visible side of academe.?-Economics of Education Review
