From time to time, I’ll mention books that have been interesting or helpful to me as I’m thinking about academia and how to negotiate it gracefully and effectively.
And when I do mention those books, I’ll likely include an affiliate link to an online vendor from whom you can purchase said book.
What’s an affiliate link?
An affiliate link is basically a way to let the vendor know that I’m the one who mentioned the book to you. If you follow the link to their site and purchase the book, I get a small amount of money from the vendor as a thank-you.
Following those links doesn’t add any money to your purchase price — you pay the same either way.
How do I know if it’s an affiliate link?
When something is an affiliate link, I’ll always make it clear by saying something like (affiliate link) and linking to this page. On the resources page, all “buy this book” buttons are affiliate links.
Have people asked you to recommend these books?
I haven’t yet encountered anyone asking me to recommend a book or review a book. If that happens, I’ll make sure to let you know.
I’m also not going to tell you a book is great if I think it’s crap. I’m too opinionated for that.
What if I’ve got other questions about this whole affiliate thing?
Email me of course!
