No punches pulled

I would recommend this short book for people contemplating a university career, those in the process of writing a PhD, and especially for people mid-career who are caught up in the machinations of power, wondering if they made the right choice. Finding out that one's path is often blocked by bullies, narcissists, and psychopaths is sobering. Tara Brabazon doesn't pull any punches in this regard. She shows how self-absorbed egotists in today's universities groom followers. On the other side of the ledger, there is a wealth of useful information about how to survive, prosper and develop authentic friendships. Tara provides five solutions at the end of each themed chapter to overcome obstacles and hurdles. Comma is both enlightening and dystopian. It can help you survive the journey.

Fantastic book to restart the PhD journey

Loved the book and ease at which Tara narrated the various chapters. This was my first audiobook and I think I might consider purchasing more.
