Received this as a first reads winner. Read because my boyfriend is a PHD student and I though it would be a good little insight into his mind. It was very informative yet funny and real at the same time. I feel like I learned a bit about what it means to be a PHD student.

I love telling dramatic, sometimes wondrous, and often tragic stories about people, commerce, maritime history, and the environment. My goal is to entertain and inform, and leave people glad that they took the time to read one of my books.
