Extremely helpful. I have advised all our PhD students to get a copy. It's valuable beyond the US system (we're in Europe), and beyond Sociology (we're in Management).

I am so glad I read this before starting graduate school. Chock full of advice for the aspiring academic. I have already bought copies for friends considering the same path. Highly recommended!

A well explained and written overview of academia that is helpful for anyone in or considering a profession in academia. A great sociological analysis of the process. Well worth one's time.

I start grad school this summer and this book is the most valuable resource!! It's really helping me fill in the blanks as far as what to expect, answering every question, and guiding me through the murky waters of academia. I have been passing info about this book (and website) on so my friends can buy it; Thank you Fabio and Smashwords!

This book is an excellent representation of the mainstream in professional sociology. It's especially valuable for my advisees, as our department is a historically critical/activist one. I wish I'd had it when I was in graduate school.
