"...snappy and informative; it's a must-buy and there's nothing near it on the market at the moment."
Stephen Hart, University College London

"I found it very informative and helpful. There was loads of useful detail that wasn't covered by the other PhD books I've been reading."
Miki Grahame, Prospective PhD Student
