You Must Be Very Intelligent: The PhD Delusion By Karin Bodewits
English | PDF | 2017 | 325 Pages | ISBN : 331959320X | 6.6 MB

You Must be Very Intelligent is the author's account of studying for a PhD in a modern, successful university. Part-memoir and part-exposé, this book is highly entertaining and unusually revealing about the dubious morality and desperate behaviour which underpins competition in twenty-first century academia.
This witty, warts-and-all account of Bodewits´ years as a PhD student in the august University of Edinburgh is full of success and failure, passion and pathos, insight, farce and warm-hearted disillusionment. She describes a world of collaboration and backstabbing; nefarious financing and wasted genius; cosmopolitan dreamers and discoveries that might just change the world. Is this a smart people's world or a drip can of weird species? Modern academia is certainly darker and stranger than one might suspect.
This book will put a wry, knowing smile on the faces of former researchers. And it is a cautionary parable for innocents who still believe that lofty academia is erected upon moral high ground.
