It is a must read for anyone interesting in doing a PhD. Just buy it, you won't regret it.
This is a very good book for the clueless grad students, as it teaches many intangible skills which may end up being as important as the research itself.
Skills such as how to network and conduct yourself in a conference, how to plan the dissertation and even critique journals.
There are even sections on presentation skills and CV writing. It also gives tips so that we are not caught in the situation where, we have graduated but realize too late we need teaching experience to get a junior teaching position.
I would highly recommend this as it really helped me a lot in my beginning stages of graduate studies.

However, I have to be honest that, this book might be redundant for phd/graduate students who have great guidance and a wonderful learning culture in their institutions. But for those who find themselves in less favorable circumstances, such as myself, this book is almost a life-saver.
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.
