Thousands of doctoral students across the U.S. struggle for years with challenging thesis topics, difficult advisors, and financial troubles. With so much pressure and often not much support, it is no surprise that many graduate students contemplate giving up. Fortunately, students can now find answers to their dilemmas in The Smart Way to Your Ph.D.: 200 Secrets from 100 Graduates, by Dora Farkas, a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After two years of research and 100 interviews with Ph.D.s from nearly 50 universities and over 30 disciplines, Dr. Farkas compiled an extensive resource guide with down-to-earth advice from successful Ph.D.s to help students plan and execute a research proposal, work efficiently with advisors and coworkers, write and defend their theses, and optimize their job searches. The Smart Way to your Ph.D. shows students how to get their graduate studies on track, finish their theses, and land their dream jobs.
