Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 971–972. Reviews the book, The professor game: What really goes on in the multi-billion-dollar education industry by Richard D. Mandell (1977). The author has written a “disrespectful” commentary on the contemporary professor. According to Mandell, professors are pampered, overpaid, and underworked. All but a few publish next to nothing and teach (badly) but a few hours a week. The author is not strong on recommendations, though he seems to favor almost anything that makes the life of the professor less attractive.
