Why the professor can't teach: Mathematics and the dilemma of university education

This was an incredible read, almost prophetic. Prof. Kline gets right down to and nails several issues, and suggests many solutions to the grim situation when it comes to not only undergrad math education but college education in general. I recommend at least the first half of the book to any prospective undergrad in any technical field, or any disgruntled graduate thinking of gradschool or beyond especially at a research institution. Entire text is highly recommended for anyone thinking of making a real difference in either K-12 or higher ed whether science or engineering
