I posted this link on my Facebook page with the following comments:
"This reminded me of the book Disciplined Minds by Jeff Schmidt. This book makes the interesting point that none of the people who posed as a doctor were caught because of incompetence. They were caught either because somebody started digging their past because of jealousy or because someone was doing a background check because they had been awarded some prize or other. Check out www.disciplinedminds.com."
Also you might like to check out the curious case of Dr. Gabor Lukacs, a courageous untenured prof at my old university -- the University of Manitoba. You can find a number of stories on Dr. Lukacs here...
Thanks for your great book. I always recommend it to everyone who wants to do a PhD, along with chapter 7 of Noam Chomsky's Understanding Power.
With best wishes for a happy new year,
