Gordon Uno asked that I "advertise" his new book on undergraduate 
teaching, which he is making available for the cost of shipping and 
handling. The book "Handbook on Teaching Undergraduate Science Courses:  A 
Survival Training Manual by: Gordon E. Uno, Ph.D., Department of Botany and 
Microbiology, University of Oklahoma, should be interesting to anyone who 
plans to accept a teaching position in a science area in higher education.

These are the major chapters.  A complete table of contents is available at 
URL:

(Sorry about the shouting font here, but it is what I was provided with.)

CHAPTER 2. WHAT YOUR LIFE WILL BE LIKE DURING THE FIRST YEARS 
CHAPTER 3. WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU GET TO YOUR JOB
