Books for new faculty

I have spent a sizable chunk of my life in a profession that requires 1) not knowing things, and then 2) reading works from people that know those things until I know those things too. So, with my faculty position looming on the horizon, and with it the amorphous and exciting batch of new responsibilities that role brings, I feel the need to read some articles/books on best practices.

I sent a tweet out fishing for advice

and received a lot of feedback! Thanks twittersphere! I made a Google doc of the recommendations, and I hope it is useful for other new faculty. Please add more!

The editable Google doc is here: Books for new faculty.

UPDATE: Books for new faculty part 2 (and new students part 1) here.
