Gave as a gift to a new graduate student and future grad student. Both seemed to like it and thought it was helpful.

This book was concise, practical and helpful. It provides an excellent overview of the process of moving from graduate student to professor. Cahn gives some excellent advice on choosing a dissertation topic, how to evaluate your dissertation chair as well as how to interview and once employed, attain tenure. I especially liked his advice on compiling a dossier of letters of recommendation from professors as you go through graduate school to be kept in the career placement office. Very sage and forward thinking advice! That would be a tremendous asset to have as one starts to interview versus scrambling about during the last few months. The book is peppered with great nuggets like this. I will definitely re-read several times. I highly recommend this for all graduate students. It is written in a very readable style and only 78 pages.

This book is a great overview of a topic that actively resists being categorized: becoming a 'scholar'. The author lays out a standard framework for thinking about the profession, and is honest at times to mention the actions necessary to get what need done. One paradox the author lays out is that concerning the emphases placed on research and teaching: tenure is granted on the basis of one's research first and foremost, with the expertise/proficiency of teaching playing a secondary role in the decision. The author also points out loopholes that aspiring professors ought to avoid. Overall, I think its a simple--if simplistic--guide for those seeking a spot within the academy.

Could be a good overview for undergraduate student
who has no idea about career paths in academia.
But I could not get much useful information from this very concise book.

Cahn's observations of the world of academia and the traps that may befall the aspiring young scholar are practical and pointed. The author's wry humour filters through much of the text, although his cynicism may be a deterrent to some wishing to enter the profession. Depending on your point of view, you may disagree with much of his advice, and much is common sense, but there is enough information that may be overlooked by many to make the book worthwhile. The book is a quick and easy read.

This was a very detailed overview of what it's like to come from a scholar, into an academic position. Ideally, this book is needed to be owned by any scholar that seeks an academic position in higher ed.
I was very pleased with this book. While the book has more of a humanities tint to it (I come from a STEM background), I did find the that the advice given was applicable to beginning academics across all disciplines. The advice given in the book is very blunt, and consistent with my own experiences. Well worth the money, and a quick read!
