    The main advice of the book: Don't panic and blurt out the truth. :)

    An excellent text on how to be an effective and efficient PhD student. The advice is general enough to be applicable to the majority of PhD programs, yet specific enough to not be vague, and to actually be helpful. My specific area of research is math / computer science, and the advice in this book is indeed quite useful. One of the habits I started from this book which I've found quite helpful is to maintain an updated annotated bibliography of all of the papers I've read. This has saved me qui [...]

    Very useful guide for joining the world of academia and preparing, writing and completing an academic research.

    Good guide to PhD life. I wish I read it in my first year :)

    I should have read this two years ago--having validated a lot of its lessons by experience rather than through received wisdom.

    Straightforward, with a decent bit of humor. Certainly not bloated, unlike a lot of these sorts of books, which I always appreciate.

    This book was given to me before I started my PhD and it took me a while to finish reading it, but I am glad I did. It contains some good, practical advice that I'm sure I will refer to over the next few years. I wouldn't say it was an enjoyable read, but given the dull subject matter it could have been a lot worse.

    I would give this book 10 stars if I could. For me, it's one of the coolest, most down-to-earth and enlightening books I've read so far. This book has given me "new eyes" for the PhD study - as an apprenticeship. But more than that, the way this book decomposes and demystifies the PhD process, the techniques/suggestions it shares to deal with various problems, and the perspectives it keeps to see PhD study as a piece in a big picture (life), are all invaluable and transferable to dealing with ot [...]

    Amazing book! I tend to have a bit of different philosophy from the authors, because of which I almost stopped reading after the third chapter. However, the book has amazing advice and perspective on the PhD. I think the most valuable element is that this book really focuses on the "in-between-the-lines" advice that is hard to articulate. For example, did you know that a reviewer can tell a lot about your character from the way that you present your references in terms of grammar and organizatio [...]

    A friendly, easy to read description of some of the most important parts of doing a PhD. It gives you a general overview of what you should be aware of, in particular things which are "unofficial" but are expected of you. I would recommend this not only to current PhD students, but also to anyone considering going for one.

    I enjoyed reading this thoughtful book that goes beyond different perspectives about doing the PhD and what follows next. It does not only cover the obvious rules of PhD, but also cover how other supervisors think of you as a researcher.

    Slightly patronizing - authors kind of assume that phd students are lazy and dumb, but then again maybe bad behavior does happen a lot. Otherwise very helpful tips, especially if you have no clue how to handle your phd life. Mainly informative for me as I've already read a lot on the subject.

    Useful, but occasionally rather blunt and cynical.

    This book doesn't need a fancy review, it needs a fancy re-reading. Lots of useful stuff.

    Genuinely entertaining explanation of things one should expect to encounter during a PhD program.
