9780972169554: Adventures in Thesisland: The Fifth Piled Higher and Deeper Comic Strip Collection

Life in Academia never seemed livelier than in this humorous take on grant writing, academic dress codes and the many uses for lab coats. Follow the phenomenon known as PHD Comics in this fifth book collection of the popular online comic strip. What would happen if Newton tweeted? If TV 'Science' shows were more like real science? If research papers had a comment section? Also included are excerpts from the script of the recently released 'The PHD Movie' and author Jorge Cham's comics journal of his travels and his detention by the U.K. border police.

About the Author:

Jorge Cham escaped with a Ph.D. in Robotics from Stanford University. After working as an instructor at the California Institute of Technology for two years, he realized his comics were more popular than his research and became a full time cartoonist, which surprisingly pays better.

Review:

Praise for PHD Comics: 'Jorge Cham's comics started out as just another way for a grad student to procrastinate. Now he's helping millions of others do the same.' --The New York Times

Praise for PHD Comics: 'Creator Jorge Cham knows the graduate world well enough to make fun of everything and everyone in it... but also reminds us of the reasons why grad students chose to study their fields in the first place.' --The Washington Post

Praise for PHD Comics: 'You'll laugh and wince at Jorge Cham's smart comic strip, which feels your pain, your panic, your coffee addition... and your departmental politics.' --USA Today
