The Professor Is In(spirational)

9:40 AM

I recently read a really wonderful book, pictured above. The Professor Is In by Karen Kelsky was not only a fun read, but incredibly informative. I've been considering going to grad school to get my masters, and then become a professor. And let me tell you, this book is RIGHT on the money about how to do that, the pros, the cons, and the steps to meet your goals. Kelsky is an interesting writer and is funny throughout the story. 

In one section Kelsky talks about being an adjunct professor, which was a major area of interest to me. She very clearly lays out the problems with being an adjunct in ways that nobody else ever had. It was very good for me personally to read exactly what the issues with my career option could be, and also what the rewards potentially could be.

The anecdotes add color and character to an incredibly informational book, and the way she is able to give that information without being boring is a rare gift. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to get a Masters Degree or a PH.D. or is interested in academia. Really a fun, and very informative read!
