(Broadway Books) If you have committed yourself to post-graduate work, this humorous guide serves to sooth the trauma of that decision. The guide is filled with handy lists, detailed charts, and humorous illustrations — all designed to make you laugh out loud, even if you haven’t seen the outside of the library for days. In addition, Ruben, who has a Ph.D. in molecular biology from Johns Hopkins University, includes some practical advice that every grad student needs to know — like how not to fall asleep in a seminar and which departmental events have the best free food. Ruben is a stand-up comedian, contributor to National Lampoon, and frequent guest on Food Detectives.
