Reviews of the first edition:
“Filled with enough advice to help keep one engaged and productive for an entire academic career.”?The Journal of Scholarly Publishing

“We plan to buy one of these for each of our incoming faculty and doctoral students. Take a look. It’s a wonderful read.”?The Review of Higher Education

"This manual's strength is in the crisp, straightforward tips on subjects ranging from how to handle students who may present a physical danger to how to navigate new technology for better teaching, research and writing. It is presented with a clever wit [and] includes a chapter on diversity that is brief and blunt."?Black Issues in Higher Education (now Diverse)

•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

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.
