Each year many books applicable to advising are published; no one advisor can read them all, yet each book may contain information vital to the advisor's professional development. Our book reviews are one way members can share their reading experiences with others. This writing experience also provides an entry point for new authors that may want to work up to submissions to our blog, Academic Advising Today and the NACADA Journal later on in their publishing career.
How does it work?
Publishers send the Executive Office books of interest to advisors. These books are made available to current members, free of charge, in exchange for a review. The member writes up a brief review and relates the content of the book to the advising profession or their work with students. Due to the diverse nature of our profession and the students we serve, books may vary by genre with some fiction and non-fiction titles available. Please note that all reviewers must be current members and there is a limit of one review per year. Completed reviews are copy edited to conform with APA style and posted here.
View available titles
Due to interest and the availability of books, titles are released every couple of weeks throughout the year. Our graduate students manage book reviews and can only process and edit so many titles per year.
