It is helpful to a supervisor because it provides a particular insight into the process of gaining a PhD. Particularly valuable is its insistence that the communication between supervisor and student needs to be regular and comprehensive to cement an effective relationship and successful development of the student's career.
It should take more account of electronic communication, which facilitates daily communication (and a "Good night" message to indicate that work is finished for the day!), but also requires a warning that the internet is only a starting point and requires supplementing with scholarly references.
It helped me and many of my fellow academics (and students) through our PhDs.
Strongly recommended :)
