I just read this book and I may say this is the best of the four books not only because of the quality (it is full colored and the kind of paper is better) but because of better jokes: Mike looking for a real job, Cecilia and her T.A. section, the eternal life in the lab (there is this remarkable joke about The Lab Hierarchy which, in my opinion, is the closest to reality of the book) and Tajel with a surprising romance.
This book also includes a game to play Bingo in an Academic Seminar, a very original idea for enjoying with your research group in some workshop you don't like.
This collection picks up where the last one left off, with Mike Slackenerny a brand new Ph.D. and overqualified for any job other than working as a postdoctoral research associate and ending with Tajel's wedding. It has the added benefit of being printed in color (at last!)
The strip is intelligent, funny and an accurate comical take on what it means to spend what may be the prime of your life still in school. You can laugh and cry at the same time.
