"In what is, in effect, a parody of a college catalog, Armour gives the Armour treatment to such subjects as admissions, campus, roommates, expenses, employment, scholarships, class attendance, grades, physical education, the honor code, faculty advisors, department heads, the curriculum, and commencement speakers. Nothing escapes the Armour-piercing scrutiny. Though this is mostly a prose book, the chapter on Faculty and Staff presents an academic Spoon River Anthology that has more knife than spoon. This book is for everybody, but especially for presidents, deans, professors, alumni, students, drop-outs, drop-ins, and people with a sense of humor."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
