"I feel grateful to have found this book only a year into my PhD. It has opened my eyes to the world of academia.

This book has allowed me to open my eyes and see all the other things I should be doing to fully succeed at my endeavour of becoming a researcher myself."
Dominic Hosler, University of Sheffield
