This presentation is about completing an academic mountain; the personal intellectual Everest of a PhD. Each doctorate is different, that is part of its purpose, but I hope any references to my own experience will apply to yours. I will try not to employ the Everest metaphor to the point of oxygen starvation, but hope that some references will prove helpful. Otherwise this presentation is something of a hybrid, between the closing section of ‘Gardeners’ Question Time’ on Radio 4 and a Dublin literary pub tour.
