Editorial Reviews

Review

"Any book of advice is subject to the reader's experience. Its worth is measured by the degree to which the reader agrees with the authors' suggestions. Lucas and Murry offer advice that most seasoned faculty would agree with. The authors believe that faculty can couple good judgment with their sound advice for the improvement of the academic enterprise. This is a strong and hopeful work." --Robert B. Young, Professor and Chair, Counseling & Higher Education, Ohio University

". . .a clearly structured, accessible, and informative primer targeted to full-time faculty members, particularly those in the early years of their appointment. It holds a distinctive place within the growing body of literature on faculty development . . . [T]he authors' ability to weave their attentiveness to the actual questions and concerns most frequently posed by new faculty members into the fabric of academic life contributes enormously to the credibility of the book. . . Many of us will be grateful for the effort."--Bernadette McNary-Zak, Rhodes College
