Review quote

'I would be happy to be able to offer this as the 'first port of call guide', perhaps to be given to students during induction.' - Lucinda Becker, University of Reading, UK 'I think that a strength of this book will be to help readers get away from the very rigid, daunting and old-fashioned idea that many people still have about the traditional PhD format.' - Jeanne Godfrey, University of Westminster, UK 'This little book should have "Don't Panic" in large, friendly letters on its front. It is a very approachable guide to what is (from the outside) a pretty inscrutable topic... It leads the reader, an apprentice researcher in some ways, through the basics of doctoral study, from choosing a University and getting to know your supervisor right through to research plans, writing and publication. I wish it had been around in the 1980s when I browsed and floundered through my first ideas for research - and I expect my supervisors would have been grateful, too!' - Amazon review
