Confessions of a PhD: Tales of Struggle and Success in the Ivory Tower Volume 1
By: D. Anthony Miles
About the Book
Confessions of a PhD shares the stories of twelve authors and their struggles and successes of pursuing their doctorate degrees. Each doctoral graduate has their own struggle and personal situations to overcome. We see a domestic abuse survivor, whose husband threw out all her textbooks. She fought to reach her goal in obtaining a doctorate. A former drug dealer who turned his life around. A graduate who didn’t care to study in high school die to their football dreams, and the injury that made them pursue another path. And another who was a former stripper. Each story has its own message, its own advice to provide to anyone pursuing a doctorate degree, especially for those who seek further advancement in the field of education. Their stories will bring laughter and heartbreak, share successes and failures, all with the affirmation that through hard work, perseverance, and dedication, anyone can achieve their PhD.
