Graduate School in the Humanitites: Just Don't Go by Thomas H. Benton

Seems counter-intuitive at first, but it makes good sense, given the tough job conditions. Unfortunately won't dissuade a whole bunch of people who just wanna stay in college forever. Yep, I'd love to go to grad school too. Get paid for studying, what's not to love? But academia is even more cut-throat than the mafia (less actual bodily harm, p'raps) and there's something to be said for NOT being in debt.

Also of interest: So You Want to Go to Grad School? also by Benton

In the Basement of the Ivory Tower, summary: The idea that a university education is for everyone is a destructive myth. An instructor at a “college of last resort” explains why.
