Abstract: Reviews the book, Write to the top! How to become a prolific academic by W. Brad Johnson and Carol A. Mullen (2007). This is a worthy addition to the family of books about academic writing. It offers practical and informal advice learned the hard way. Beyond their advice about writing itself, Johnson and Mullen offer good advice about working with collaborators, finding mentors, planning projects, managing many writing projects at once, and developing a systematic body of work. Mentorship in particular receives a lot of attention; few writing books have anything to say about this important aspect of academic writing.
