Who reads a 800 pages dissertation to know that it is glorious? Well, how many pages of references/citations? Some dissertation committee members don’t even bother to read. They tend to leave it up to the chair of the committee who in fact put the burden on the author. Nonetheless, congrats to Neri

Jeff “Superman” Tucker does; he eats them for breakfast.

Indeed, congrats to Senor Neri!

So when do the rest of us get to read it?

Who is Dr. Neri?

800 pages? Seriously?

I can only open the photo so far. Anyone have a link to this? I’d at least like to know the page of contents if nothing else.

Academic work is by much a waste of time. The guy have to sum up all the published content which exists on all issues he is dealing with. 2/3 of the pages are dedicated to say what everybody already knows.

Holy s**t. I thought my 150 pages was a lot.

Mine was about 180. The committee thought it was short (in the country where I wrote it, the “standard” lenght of a PhD thesis is 200 pages). My supervisor kept asking me to be as brief as possible and to cut everything that wasn’t essential. The literature review section is only about 20 pages long. ;-)

Then again, I had only 3.5 years to do my PhD. According to an internet site, Dr. Massimiliano had been working on his since 2002. I’m curious to see the result, hope it will be online soon.

Of course, I have been unable to find a job since I graduated. I begin to wonder if there’s a relation, although I am not looking for an academic job. :-D

Good luck with the job search.

I took 5 years to do mine, so now I don’t feel so back. 9 years? I think where I went you had 7 max in my field.
