  • "This book is a unique and essential guide to the start of a successful academic career. As its subtitle suggests (nothing in excess), it advocates moderation in ways of working, based on the most reliable research differentiating between new faculty who thrive and those who struggle. By following its practical, easy-to-use rules, new faculty can learn to teach with the highest levels of student approval, involvement, and comprehension - with only modest preparation time and a greater reliance on spontaneity and student participation. Similarly, new faculty can use its rule-based practices to write with ease, increasing productivity, creativity, and "publishability" through brief, daily sessions of focused and relaxed work. And they can socialize more successfully by learning about often-misunderstood aspects of academic culture, including mentoring. Based on practical experience and solid research, Advice for New Faculty Members has been tested on hundreds of new faculty and proven effective over time, even in attaining permanent appointment."--BOOK JACKET
