The CEO of the Sofa
by PJ O'Rourke. Whether or not you embrace his political ideology, the man's funny. I saw him read from the book a couple months ago, and his delivery was dead on.
O'Rourke on Academia:
"Anthropology is just travel writing about places that don't have room service. Sociology is journalism without news. And psychology is peeking into your sister's diary after your parents have sent her to rehab."
