I read this book for school, and it's nonfiction and 200 pages long. Waaah!
But actually, for a nonfiction book about The Academy, it's a pretty good read. Fitzgerald boldly considers reviewing and revising the peer review process--a process that academics hold dear and that is integral to legitimizing scholarship and by extension scholars. She's not so much saying "fuck peer review" as let's peer review better by opening it up.
Fitzpatrick represents most things open, not just peer review. She likes open access, open source, and in general, a culture of openness, one she is brave enough to embody by writing her book in public and open to scrutiny.
In addition to the one on peer review, there are chapters in the book focusing on authorship, texts, preservation, and the university. You can see what my classmates wrote about them on our class blog.
