The authors talk about things that most people in academia like professors, assistants, supervisors - take for granted and do not even consider to mention or teach. The book covers the whole range from the attitude and behaviors that are expected from a grad student, to basic information on types of papers, the writing process, the viva (as I am not a native speaker, this was the first time I heard this expression! For us, this is called "defensio") to aspects of career development.

Skills such as how to network and conduct yourself in a conference, how to plan the dissertation and even critique journals.
There are even sections on presentation skills and CV writing. It also gives tips so that we are not caught in the situation where, we have graduated but realize too late we need teaching experience to get a junior teaching position.
I would highly recommend this as it really helped me a lot in my beginning stages of graduate studies.
However, I have to be honest that, this book might be redundant for phd/graduate students who have great guidance and a wonderful learning culture in their institutions. But for those who find themselves in less favorable circumstances, such as myself, this book is almost a life-saver.
I perceived the told stories experiences of the authors as very authentic and practice-oriented. Sometimes I got a little overwhelmed by the densely packed amount of information leaving me asking the question how to transfer the knowledge written in the book to my personal PhD activities. I suggest complementary reading to delve deeper into areas like research design and methods.
All in all I highly recommend this book to every PhD student.
Having completed an MA this information rings very true, and I can now understand a lot of what my supervisor was telling me that didn't make a lot of sense at the time. Given what I've got from this book, I think I would have been able to produce a more streamlined and clearly academic dissertation if I had the chance to do it again. Now I'm planning to start a PhD, and this is a very helpful substitute for the cup of coffee with an experienced researcher that the authors recommend so frequently.
Well worth the purchase for anyone contemplating doing higher-level research - this would be just as useful for a student starting a postgraduate diploma or master's dissertation.
Two thumbs up, no hesitation.
