The article contains useful advice for postgraduate students who are looking for a suitable supervisors, as well as some priceless quotes. I especially liked these two:
- "Time is finite. Bureaucracy is infinite."
- "If the prospective supervisor needs a personality replacement, lacks the life skills to manage a trip to the supermarket or requires electronic tagging so that he (or she) does not sleep with the spouses of colleagues, then make another choice. Supervisors should be functional humans."
