    LB Klein 3.0 out of 5 starsNothing New November 25, 2016Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase This is mostly advice that I've seen before, repackaged. This volume could have really used some more editing and could have benefited from including more diverse perspectives. One person found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse CyberFonic 4.0 out of 5 starsRead this early in your PhD adventure October 13, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase I've had the pleasure of meeting the author in person. Unfortunately I was 2/3 through before I came across her and this book. Would have been better if I had been introduced to it in the first year. A very useful supplement to the supervisor's guidance. 2 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Nick Del Grosso 5.0 out of 5 starsThe Unwritten Rules We Should All Know! January 5, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase Thank you for this well-written and understandable book! As a PhD student who is constantly frustrated for not understanding the reasons and rules that his colleagues and supervisors follow, this book has helped tremendously, boosting my confidence and helping me to navigate the waters of academia. It was interesting, fun, and insightful to read. Thank you! 3 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse None Provided 5.0 out of 5 starsPractical and pleasant April 10, 2015Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase Very practical overview of what to expect, how to engage and what not to do. The writing style made it a very pleasant and informative read. One person found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Jonathan 5.0 out of 5 starsExtremely helpful, highly recommended. June 3, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase I haven't finished reading this book yet but I'm halfway through and wish I'd found it earlier. Very clearly written in an informal and engaging style, and absolutely jam-packed with useful advice - I'm finding myself highlighting something from virtually every paragraph I read!

    Having completed an MA this information rings very true, and I can now understand a lot of what my supervisor was telling me that didn't make a lot of sense at the time. Given what I've got from this book, I think I would have been able to produce a more streamlined and clearly academic dissertation if I had the chance to do it again. Now I'm planning to start a PhD, and this is a very helpful substitute for the cup of coffee with an experienced researcher that the authors recommend so frequently.

    Well worth the purchase for anyone contemplating doing higher-level research - this would be just as useful for a student starting a postgraduate diploma or master's dissertation.

    Two thumbs up, no hesitation. 3 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse W. Sapparojpattana 5.0 out of 5 starsA must read for future and present Ph.D. students, eps. ABDs October 20, 2012Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase I wanted to finish this book since the first page thanks to its language and 'truth'. The content is applicable to Ph.D. in both sides of the Pacific as well as other standard Ph.D. on earth, where the programs are structured differently. But the process along the way and the struggling experiences are common. Future Ph.D. student must read in order to ensure it is right for you and to keep the opportunity cost in pursuing other things in life. Present Ph.D. students must read so that all right things be done with a realistic view. The book is particularly helpful to ABD type to make it certain that you would complete a Ph.D.less than 7 suffering years! One person found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Johann Grabner 5.0 out of 5 starsHelpful and interesting read June 29, 2013Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase In my opinion this book contains very useful information for students working on or considering a PhD programme. The informal storytelling style makes up an entertaining read, which felt sometimes a bit verbose and lengthy to me.

    I perceived the told stories experiences of the authors as very authentic and practice-oriented. Sometimes I got a little overwhelmed by the densely packed amount of information leaving me asking the question how to transfer the knowledge written in the book to my personal PhD activities. I suggest complementary reading to delve deeper into areas like research design and methods.

    All in all I highly recommend this book to every PhD student. 5 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse PhDs 5.0 out of 5 starsessential September 17, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase An absolutely essential read for anyone who wants to have success while pursuing a PhD. My advice is to read it earlier on in the program rather than after you've finished. One person found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse See all 18 reviews Write a customer review
