Many books suggest chocolate but that is just childish. This book offers some more adult solutions and may even prevent you from going temporarily or permanently insane. If you are poor or over 35 it could well supply the inspiration to carry on, something that a guide aimed at 18 years olds with a parental home just does not do.Like PhDs, most student guides are rather serious long-winded affairs.

This is definitely not serious or long-winded as it is a mere 60 pages in book format. It is what a PhD should be: concise, practical, fun, informative and, hopefully, thought provoking. Beneath the superficial comedy there runs a darker philosophy that probably belongs in a large tome on the politics of the education system.Whilst aimed at people planning to do or wondering whether it is worth doing a PhD, it gives advice that is applicable to both undergraduates and postgraduates.

Pre-publishing market research (at the local pub) showed that non students also loved it, as its humour is not limited to those allegedly lucky enough to be at university. There are only a few references to places in the UK so its main messages should transfer to other countries.Publishers noteIf you are lucky, the book navigation software will work. If you cannot go to the table of contents go to the start and the TOC is the next page. Sorry if this is a pain.
