Other Academic Survival Guidance: Kelsky, Toth (Ms. Mentor)

Kelsky's The Professor is In is concrete and specific and step by step from graduate student to perhaps tenure. It's quite inexpensive on, at least right now.

Emily Toth's Ms. Mentor... book, the more recent one, is filled with good sensible advice, advice that boils down to: no acting out, always be pleasant and accommodating, and if your job is ruining you life it's ok to leave academia (but realize what you are doing).
