I was wondering whether anyone has any recommendations for books about getting/doing a PhD. I am now reading The Unwritten Rules of PhD Research and it is very good, so I’d happily recommend it – it is one of those books that helps you see the underlying order in what appears to be the chaos going on around you.
For my domain of study Writing for Computer Science: The Art of effective Communication is also essential reading.
