Listening to Your Book — Craig Willse with Good Advice on Writing your First Academic Book

Finally, this book is for you. It’s not for your former adviser, it’s not for your tenure committee, it’s not for that jerk at the conference who showed up late to your panel and then dismissed your entire project. Yes, it is for your readers, but don’t they deserve a book that you love and believe in? I know a book captivates me most when I can palpably feel the author’s urgency and enthusiasm rippling across its pages.
