  A guide to successful mentoring relationships

I read parts of this book on the web site of the National Academy Press and decided to order a hardcopy. This is a useful guide for anyone involved in (or contemplating) a career in higher education. The book is a well-organized collection of advice on mentoring undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students and junior faculty. It also addresses issues related to cultural bias, sexual harassment, and thesis planning. The guide features a long discussion on career prospects and career planning for students in science and engineering, with a set of examples of non-academic careers.
