Note to Adobe eBook Customers: The Adobe Acrobat eBook Reader version is copyable and printable, but there is a known problem printing to printers that do not use the PostScript page description language. This problem occurs with some HP LaserJet, Epson Stylus inkjet, and Epson impact printers. Consult your printer’s documentation to find out if it is PostScript compatible. This does not affect your ability to read the book on screen.

A wonderful book, though its charm probably requires some grasp of academia and the ideologies or intellectual 'disciplines' being satirized. Even (but only) a few academic ideologues may crack a smile, before undoubtedly reverting to character in the rush for yet more publications and conference panel invitations.
