Everyone who goes down the path of an academic education sooner or later ends up at a particular branch: PhD or not? As a recent Master Graduate, I can tell that this is a tough and tricky decision because you don't know what to expect and, accordingly, which aspects to base your decision on.

When someone seriously tinkers with the idea of doing a PhD "How to survive your Doctorate", however, is exactly what they are looking for. It is written by two young authors who recently experienced themselves the virtues and problems of being a PhD in the making. The book is intelligently structured in 10 Chapters which reflect the milestones you have to pass as a PhD student - from the very beginning to the very end.

The fact that Matthiesen and Binder do not mince matters makes "How to survive your Doctorate" so different. By incorporating their own experiences and those of their fellow doctorates the authors paint an authentic picture of what it means to be a PhD student in an academic as well as private setting. Whereas many of the current PhD guidebooks in the bookstores focus on the technical aspects, this book does not neglect the social components and difficulties of an everyday life as a PhD. Thus, the two authors know how to answer also the "unasked" questions everyone bears in their minds while struggling and truly bring up things "others don't tell you."

Written in a fluent and refreshing manner the honesty and charm of the book make it easy to extract the main arguments. Little cartoons at the beginning of each chapter, for instance, playfully introduce the reader to the contents of the following. In sum "How to survive your doctorate" aims at two things. First, for strugglers, it is a preparation guide which points at the virtues and difficulties of a life as PhD and, thus, eases the choice whether or not to go down this path. Second, for PhDs in the making it constitutes an useful road map - a backup for "surviving" the lean times every PhD entails.

I read this book after having done my PhD, and with every page i turned, i wished i had read this before (or that it had been written before). It is written to be read (what a difference to academic texts), empathically and passionately, and nails all the issues on the head. This is a real survival guide, it totally deserves the title. I especially enjoyed the parts where various students tell their stories - this emphasizes that many of the authors' points are not simply horror scenarios, but that these things happen, happen everyday, and that doctoral students throughout the country (or even world) battle with them, but go through them and become stronger for it. The book strikes a perfect balance between brutal honesty - which would discourabe people from a PhD - and confidence building advice. I will recommend it to any of my friends who are toying with the idea of doing a PhD.
There is only one point on which i slightly disagree with the authors: I think it is useful to get involved in academic politics, at least to some extent. yes it can be a challenging and threatening experience when you're in the middle of it, but it is a great preparation for organizational politics that come later in life.

Don't kid yourself. Obtaining a PhD degree is one of the toughest things you are going to do. You will suffer... on various level. You might at times even lose your sanity. This book helps you to understand that you are not the only one going through this, and, most importantly, how to find your way out of it. The book is conveniently structured into topics that each PhD student may encounter and that matter! Read it to prepare what is going to come... prepare for the real stuff. And most of all, I found the book written in an entertaining way. There is often no better way to cope with the obscurities in your pursuit for a PhD than shaking it all off with a laugh. It is a world of its own and this book will help you to understand it.
