The Deliberate Doctorate
A Values-Focused Journey to your PhD
This uplifting and honest book shows postgraduate students how their personal values can help them navigate the universe of possibilities they will encounter while doing a doctoral degree. Author Leela Viswanathan takes a "whole person" approach to the PhD experience and addresses typically unconsidered but crucial topics such as self-care, networking, and the non-academic career path. Readers are led through a personalized map of the process: reflective exercises will guide them in identifying their values and then aligning these with their skills, activities, and resources to achieve success on their own terms. This is a must-read for doctoral students, supervisors, and advisors, as well as those considering doing a PhD.
