I am a big fan of James M. Lang, author of Life on the Tenure Track. I first read this book a few years ago as James discussed his challenges and success in the classroom at Assumption College. Beyond that, James was also up for tenure — which is added pressure to not only teaching well, but also producing quality level scholarship. From what I have read, James is a great teacher. In his recent book: On Course, he drafts advice gathered from others on being successful in the classroom. As a teacher, and one with a number of academic/professional ambitions, I am always seeking advice on improving my craft. I do see myself at this stage in my career as a master teacher; however, I am always curious to read and observer what others are doing, too.
