Books about academic career

  1. Jul 28, 2005 #1
    Did anyone read any good books with advice on developing your academic career starting from grd school? Or everyone is just spontaneous or listening to what your prof says. I find that for people, who are not absolute geniuses it's necessary to know this kind of stuff to succeed in making a career in science.

    "A Mathematician's Survival Guide: Graduate School and Early Career Development" by Steven Krantz was given to me by a grad student (I just finished up my second year), and it's very well written.
