Book Title: Rhythms of Academic Life: Personal Accounts of Careers in Academia

Author: Peter J. Frost and M. Susan Taylor (Eds.)

Book Description:

This book provides insights into the process of research and the academic career. It helped me to understand the challenges and 'loneliness' faced by researchers. The book relates stories of various research projects and how the researchers managed the process, as well as insightful commentary by peers on the process. This book, by its structure, throws a great deal of light on the academic career. Some of the stories are inspirational and show the common problems faced by all researchers and the means to manage some of these common issues.
