….8000 hits. It is, of course, my most popular post (totalling about 35 pages or so). For a couple I years I have toyed with the idea of expanding it into a book. Now, I am quite close to closing the deal on getting it into print.
But – why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Well, I expect that the book will have three main parts – (1) getting into a phd program, (2) doing well on your dissertation and surviving your defense, and (3) preparing to be a scholar (publishing, book contracts, book reviews, networking, conference presentations, job interviews, etc…).My PhD post covers primarily the first part of the projected book, but many students will find themselves in need for parts (2) and (3) if they listen to me on part (1)! Also, I may trim down what I offer on that blog post -keeping bare minimum info, but encouraging readers to get the book. Hopefully it can be reasonably priced.
So, I will keep you updated on whether I can make this work or not! I hope so!
