This book is really written in an honest way and explains the administrative procedures of a British PhD system. It talks about the fears and uncertatainties which PhD students face and talks about the traps in which one should never fall into. It talks in depth about the risk of over-estimating the amount of work required for a PhD which can lead to failure. After reading this book I realised I wasn't just a weird guy thinking about nonsense but many people have the same fears and thoughts. It really helped me relax and take a more realistic view of the goals. It helped me in having a great time during my PhD. One piece of advice: Loneliness should not be underestimated! If you have a healthy social life, it can help you go through the though times.
