    Although written 15 years ago, this book is relevant today, especially his last chapter on the changes needed in higher education Kennedy draws on his vast reservoir of experience to discuss many responsibilities of those in academic life, from teaching which he rightly considers to be among the most important to research, ethics, and other areas I strongly recommend to those beginning or considering a career in higher education.
