Shelves: knowledge
This book is a bit dated (20 years now!), but its lessons are still useful. Use this as a primer on what to expect from the process of moving from grad student to faculty and also on what to do and what not to do to be successful at each stage. Essentially, the minute details may change due to time and place, but the overall strategies to plan for the future and also to figure out what you want and don't want are still relevant.

Definitely worth a read for undergrads, grad students, industry peop

Another good guidebook for aspiring professors. It'll show you all the crap that you have to put up with as an academic, and hopefully convince you to get a real job.
