This book is a guide for how to present yourself as you transition from graduate student to college professor. Obviously something I don't need to be reading right now (I'm still in my M.A. program at present), but certainly something I should be keeping in the back of my mind as I begin to develop an academic career. As someone who's never yet been on the academic job market, I can't yet judge whether or not this is useful advice, but it certainly seems to be-- eminently practical, and good at pointing out not only what the searcher should be doing, but what the searchees should be doing as well (and what might be bad signs at a potential hiring institution). There are rather a lot of lists. Now I like lists, and some of them were quite useful, but others felt like they were there just because Sandra Barnes is a scientist, and that's what scientist do. (Weirdly, I finished the book. Helpful and anxiety-inducing all at once; I don't want to have to think about these things yet!
