The journey of a quality PhD program is one of the toughest intellectual challenges that one can face in one's life. Its an incredibly long unique journey, with lots of hurdles as it comes along.

Here is a great memoir by a remarkable student Philip J. Guo, from Stanford, describing his arduous tough life at Stanford from 2006 to 2012, in Computer Science department, as a PhD student.
