I appreciate that the authors are frank and that the book doesn't have a narrative format. The last thing I need to do is make time to read another book cover-to-cover--the topical chapters and numbered "hints" make this easy to read, leisurely, and still helpful.
Unfortunately, this book takes the same approach as many other books and assumes that there is a One Right Way to have a successful academic career (and that there is a One Right Person who is capable of such a thing). It's good to know what is expected from the One Right Person, but it's also good to know that all institutions and academics are different.
