This book works!
I read this book two years ago while ABD. Then, I followed it, and now I teach online and on ground. I am not making the money they talk about however, but its a slow process. Worth every penny! I will add that teaching online has been extremely rewarding. These authors add clarity to a difficult process.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It's About Time
After completing my PhD, I have spent the last 4 years trying to get on with a traditional university with no luck. Also, corporate America is a waste of time especially if you have a PhD because everyone is afraid they will have to call you doctor, especially your supervisor or (God forbid) the CEO. This book takes a hard look at a new industry that allows degreed professional away to make an excellent living and still have time for family and friends.Was this review helpful?

Dear 'A Concern'
This review is written from the vantage point of one of Dr. Mirabella's students - two different stats courses with him through Capella University's Ph.D. program. The book is completely reflective of how Dr. Mirabella successfully approaches his objective of ensuring a high quality learning experience for his students. It is practical and comprehensive, using an understandable and conversational tone to help would-be instructors in a way that is like having a job coach/mentor at the ready through every step of the process. This book takes the view that with the increasing popularity of on-line education, there is plenty of work for those who seek it. It is in this spirit that it provides practical wisdom on everything from the personal decision to seek a teaching position to the implications of organizational politics and the importance of one's attitude. While teaching on-line may not be for everyone, this book is a highly recommended 'must read' for anyone considering it as a whole or partial career move.
