The Leshy

 A bed-time story for children of any age, and a cautionary tale for any time.

 

Fully illustrated in colour throughout, printed on silk finish durable card.

How to get a PhD: Trusting to luck?

 

Whilst being originally aimed at PhD students, the book has many lifestyle tips that  degree students could find useful.

  

Dr Iliffe leads you though a tongue in cheek zen journey from dingy  derelict private accommodation to the joys and disappointments of having a doctorate. Wisdom, humour and a true philosophy of life after PhDeath, and a love of books that are not too long.
