The Unruly PhD
Doubts, Detours, Departures, and Other Success Stories
|Publication Date||August 2014|

The Unruly PhD is a collection of first-person stories recounted by former graduate students who have successfully reached the other side of a PhD - and are willing to speak frankly about the challenges and decisions they faced along the way. Their stories reveal that many of the difficulties associated with graduate school are institutional rather than personal; that getting sidetracked, detoured and even derailed are the norm, not the exception; and that success is not necessarily tied to the tenure track - or even to completion. Ultimately, The Unruly PhD leaves no doubt that there are as many right ways to get through graduate school as there are students willing to forge their own paths.
