why buy the grad skool rulz?

Occasionally, people ask why they should pay for a book that already exists as a series of free blog posts. My response:

  • The Grad Skool Rulz is an amazing bargain. $3 is a pittance for extensive, blunt, and detailed advice based on 20 years working in the academy.
  • It is readable on just about any device – tablets, smart phones, nooks, etc.
  • Table of contents hyper-linked – easy to find stuff.
  • Snazzy & controversial color cover, specially commissioned.
  • Last section on getting tenure.

If $3 is still beyond your budget, please email me.
