How to Make Progress in Your PhD – Change From the Inside Out

Defining what success means to you is empowering.

In college, I remember my Circuits professor saying, “V=IR, ” and pointing to the blackboard during the first class, “put this equation in your toolbox and you’ll get through this course.” I don’t use Circuits anymore, but I do remember that equation and his analogy.

Getting the right books and mindsets into your toolbox can change your life.

We recommend putting this book into your tool box.
