  • This irreverent, but serious, guide to what life in higher education institutions is really like, now enhanced by 100 new tips
  • Invaluable advice that ranges from getting your Ph.D. to setting the course of your academic career

  • Just landed your first faculty position? Close to getting your Ph.D., and planning a career in academe? What will academic life be like? How do you discover its tacit rules? Develop the habits and networks needed for success? What issues will you encounter if you are a person of colour, or a woman? How is higher education changing?

    Paul Gray and David E. Drew share their combined experience of many years as faculty and (recovering) administrators to offer even more insider advice, the kind that's rarely taught or even talked about in graduate school to help you succeed.

    The 100 new hints expand sections on the dissertation process, job hunting, life in the classroom and on dealing with students, as well as on matters that affect readers careers, such as research, publication, and tenure. The book concludes with a tongue-in-cheek appendix on How to Become a Millionaire while an academic.

    Already have the first edition? Give it to someone less fortunate than you, and take advantage of the new advice you will find in these pages. Too penurious to buy this book? Persuade a family member or friend to get it as a gift.
