Like Nobody’s Business is a remarkable piece of work. The book describe all aspects of the enormously complicated business of higher education in terms of the flow and utilization of resources—human but predominantly financial. In doing so, the author addresses all the issues that are perennially discussed and contested in the popular media, in both governmental and nongovernmental policy forums, and in academic studies. This book simply provides a wealth of information on topics large and small, but especially on the chief foci of policy and controversy in American higher education.

Comrie […] achieves something readers might not believe possible: making university finances comprehensible and even interesting for both laypeople and professionals. […] This is not a mechanical practitioner's bottom-up view, and therein lies the strength of this text for readers who may be university professionals.
