The Ph.D. Survival Guide
By Eric Jay Dolin; Illustrations by Dave Carpenter (iUniverse, 140 pp., 2005, ISBN: 0595350305, $13.95)
The Ph.D. Survival Guide is an unvarnished, humorous, and very personal peek at the Ph.D. process and how to make it through to the end, more or less in one piece. Drawing primarily on his experience at MIT, Dolin, accompanied by the fantastic cartooning talents of Dave Carpenter, offers a satirical perspective on the journey one takes on the way to gaining a doctorate.
