Summary

When Karin enters a high-ranked university to start her PhD she is brimming with hope and positively overflowing with grit determination to prove she is worthy. After all, she knows that only the extraordinarily learned and the astonishingly intelligent ever hold chairs and professorships. She knows researchers are idealists yearning to enrich the stock of human knowledge. She knows university is the apotheosis of civilised culture... She knows very little...

Challenging

As someone that had a similar PhD journey I found this book quiet tedious. There are so many parts where the author is a sanctimonious pompous arse that it was really hard to not switch off. And to be fair at the end of the book she walked out of the lab not looking in too bad shape. Two first author papers, a conference award, a nice viva and miniscule corrections. I take it any day.
