  1. I have a good book to recommend with regard to adressing some of your concerns about your perception of the ‘sham of academia’, although, it should come as no huge surprise that it is mainly about political science — knowing me and my general studies… But, I believe that some of the main themes to apply to other disciplines as well. It gave me a lot to think about and consider as I’m looking toward finishing my degree soon, too.

    Let me know if it might be something you’d be interested in hearing more about.
