FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR PHD PRESENTATION AND BOOK SIGNING WITH AUTHOR DR. JASON KARP
San Diego, CA – Author Dr. Jason Karp will present How to Survive Your PhD and sign copies of his newly-released book by the same name at Alliant International University in San Diego on Wednesday, February 24 at 6:00 p.m. in Green Hall.
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. At this presentation and in his book, he brings that advice to graduate students.
How to Survive Your PhD is a real-life, no B.S. guide through the trials and tribulations of graduate school. It is published by Sourcebooks, Inc. and is available at booksellers nationwide. An autographed copy of the book can be purchased athttp://www.runcoachjason.com/publications.
