The book deals with a specific encounter in academic life — supervising. It is a letter that combines facts, emotions, and secrets. An advisor welcomes a future undergraduate student. The letter goes through affections and surprises, but also methodology guides and research ethics. The work is an invitation that seeks to guide the intellectual encounter between two people — the supervisor and the student who is at the end of an undergraduate course. This book does not teach you how to do research, but how to prepare yourself for the experience of academic creation and authorship.
