Editorial Reviews

Emily Toth
This is a great decoder of a book. David Perlmutter explains what's meant by those mysterious glances, those strange academic terms, the intricacies of teaching and publishing that can baffle and terrify newbies (and even the most seasoned academics). He helps you recognize what's typical, what's terrific, and what's toxic, with understanding and sense of humor--and great stories from the trenches.
James Lang
This will be an indispensable guidebook for all sorts of young academics--from graduate students bent on high-powered research careers to newly hired professors at liberal arts colleges. Whether it's about safeguarding your internet profile, dealing with irascible colleagues, or building your tenure case, Perlmutter has great suggestions for managing the fine points of a successful academic career.
