Format: Paperback
I was a little disappointed with the depth of the coverage given to the job-search process (probably because that's my main focus right now), but I still think that this book will come in very handy in the future. If you are a psychology major thinking about grad school, a psychology graduate student, or a psychology professor at the beginning of their career, this book has a lot of useful information. There are some missing data spots, but no book is perfect of course.

This is a really good book for doctoral students to understand and prepare for their academic life. It covers many important aspects of being a faculty member in universities,such as getting published,applying for jobs,doing research,applying for research grants. Very useful.

This book is a must have for anyone in or considering a career in academia as a psychologist. It offers wonderful perspectives for what you should and should not do at all stages of your academic career. As a psychology grad student, I am recommending it to all of my peers. I could not be happier with this book. It is a wonderful source of professional guidance and inspiration.

I bought this book for my wife, and she refers to it all of the time. She says it is very easy to use and is quite helpful.

Format: Paperback
The Compleat Academic: A Career Guide, holds a substantial amalgam of knowledge from experienced scholars to health practitioners. It is the sole source of reference that an adherent student of higher education must have in order to considerably prepare for future career as an academic, researcher, or clinician. It grants considerable details on how to be successful in academia, starting from pursuing a research-academic career immediately after completion of a doctoral degree or chase a post-doctoral position, to simply sustaining a profession in a research-focused university. I raise my chapeau to the authors and collaborators in compiling these untold secrets pertaining to throughout and following post-graduate degree.

The content of this book is excellent and knowledge well understood by the author.
But the 1-star is for lack of appropriate Kindle set-up of this book: There is NO Table of Contents for navigation! This makes navigating this book awful, especially if you like to jump chapters. You have to flip pages constantly or use the slider to GUESS the beginning of a chapter. And the useless "screen count" never helps with this.
The fact that I paid MORE then the paperback version was the ultimate insult. I want my money back OR an updated version WITH a functional table of contents please!!
