The Lean PhD: Radically Improve the Efficiency, Quality and Impact of Your Research
This is a useful antidote to my perfectionist reflexes now that I am at the start of my own PhD. It's a quick read, with a personal writing style, largely in the self help mode. The constant use of startups as a metaphor gets tiresome though—I'm interested in lean, but I have spent enough time in and around startups to know they are not something to aspire to in most regards. Regardless, I took a few immediately applicable things away from this, in particular around writing and getting published. So for that alone, I would recommend it.
