In graduate school, Jason Karp did almost everything the wrong way. After three qualifying exams, two dissertation proposals, 150 pages per dissertation proposal, two universities, one procrastinating advisor, a second advisor on the other side of the country, ten research delays, 20 trips to the psychologist, seven years, and an annoying partridge in a tree that drove him out of his apartment when he was trying to write his dissertation, Jason learned a few things about how to navigate and survive the PhD process. In his book, he brings that advice to graduate students.
