Livros da Vida Acadêmica

Além das motos e das bicicletas, também gosto de estudar sobre a vida acadêmica. Não podia ser diferente, já que entrei em uma universidade há quase 30 anos atrás, dedicando quase toda a minha vida a ela. Fiz graduação, doutorado e depois virei professor.

Tenho livros de vários tipos que falam sobre as nossas manias e o nosso dia a dia. Os de ficção, que misturam o lado cômico, o dramático e o trágico; os livros sérios sobre a estrutura das universidades ao redor do mundo; sobre a escrita de artigos e de projetos; sobre a vida de grandes pensadores; e tenho até livros que falam sobre outros livros.

Continuando ainda com a minha biblioteca, há outras páginas aqui no Equilíbrio em Duas Rodas que podem interessar, como a  minha coleção de livros de bicicleta, os livros de moto, a página com comentários sobre livros e uma lista de livros técnicos e acadêmicos. No mais, fique com a lista de livros da vida acadêmica.
