"Becoming a Law Professor: A Candidate's Guide"

So I finally got around to examining this new book from the ABA, which is preposterously overpriced at nearly $100!   It's clearly not worth that price, since most of the information it contains is available on-line and for free.  (Examples here, here, and here.)  That being said, it would be easy to recommend if it were $9.99, since it does aggregate a lot of the information that is dispersed around cyber-space, and it adds some useful commentary on a variety of issues aspiring law teachers confront.  Those interested in law teaching might see about getting a library copy of this book to peruse.
