"As a PhD student, I would say that this book is more useful for two groups of people: 1) those who are thinking of going through a phd program and becoming professors, and 2) for advanced phd students who are getting to the job market. This book is lacking in useful advice for funding, staging the phd progress and conducting research, which is why I originally bought it. (It might be better titled as "guide to the academic job market and working conditions") "

Recommends it for: people considering grad school & people in grad school
Most definitely has given me a lot to think about with regards to grad school. I enjoy that it's realistic and not sugar-coated and yet not completely pessimistic, either. Definitely gives me some hope.
