I am fortunate enough to be pursuing my PhD in Biomedical Sciences under the mentorship of the acclaimed Dr. Shaw M. Akula. "A Guide to PhD Success" is an "easy-read" self-help book targeting those students who may be interested in pursuing graduate studies in a science related field. The book contains useful tips/pointers/explanations, explores many different scenarios that students may face, and expresses personal views from a professor who wholeheartedly wants to see young minds excel in the sciences. I personally feel that this book would have been a great tool to have during my undergraduate career when I was a biology major interested in science but did not know all of the available academic and career options at the time. Honestly, after undergrad, I must attribute much of my success as a student to Dr. Akula and his teaching methods because prior to meeting him, no one had ever told me the TRUTH about what to expect in regards to pursuing graduate studies. Thankfully via his tutelage, I attained my Master's in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology in 1.5 years and I hope to earn my doctorate with ease as well.

This book is truly a treasure. Brilliant. It has it all: superb and down to earth advice, inside information that is rarely taught to students directly; it includes a sweet, short and completely honest point of view of what to expect as a PhD student/candidate, and what you can do to improve your skills and progress while in the program.

It's a very reader-friendly book, incredibly inspiring. Each sentence in this book is full of wisdom. I have read several other books about how to succeed in your PhD program (300-400 pages); on which you basically have to look for the diamonds among the coals. This can be very time consuming. (PhD students don't have the luxury of time!). That does not happen with Dr. Akula's book. He respects your time, and goes directly to the point.

I really enjoyed this book and definitely highly recommend it. It spoke to my mind, soul and heart. I felt refreshed after reading it. I just feel ready to reach the next level! Thanks so much, Dr. Akula. Thank you.

Dr. Akula's easy-to-read Ph.D. guide is extremely well-written and has provided me with invaluable information to help me achieve my Ph.D. The insight in this book is perfect for anyone thinking about taking the Ph.D. route or anyone who is already in a Ph.D. program. I have no doubt that I will return to this book many times over the next several years to aid me in obtaining my degree. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us Dr. Akula.
