It is a pocket book, means you needn't spent weeks or even months to read. I finished it at my weekend, and did have an enjoy.
This book taught you how to become a survival scientist. In my opinion, the author is only emphasized on 2 things: 1. You should have prepared on anything you will undertake. 2. It is your life, it is your choice. Think it as the first rule.
Beside above, I've got a know about normal life of American post-doc. Although they do have an adored life after succeeded, most of young doctor are under presses.
Finally this book is easy to read and understand. I believe anyone who passed CET-6 will read through it without any difficult.
