You're feeling secure in mid-career, with some accomplishments to be proud of. But what should success really look like?You're nearing the end of your career, and sometimes apprehensive about the blank slate of retirement. What might it look like to finish well?

Now, with discerning wisdom and apt examples, he hosts the conversation he wishes he'd had when he started out as a college professor, identifying three cohorts or stages in the academic career and exploring the challenges, pitfalls and triumphs of each.
