ElisaGenie offers a free e-book on “How to complete a successful PhD”.

Arjenne Louter is offering “The Best Way to a Successful PhD, an excellent course for students in the first years of the PhD. This course consists of teleseminars, reading assignments, videos, forum discussions, and more – a wide variety of (visually) engaging material that won’t feel like a chore when you work through it during your evenings. What I like most about the course is that it deals with both the technical aspects of doing research (such as planning, writing, delving through the literature and more), the soft skills involved (dealing with your supervisor(s), negotiation techniques,…) and the energy work that is related to doing a PhD (staying healthy and happy, keeping your spirits high). In those terms, Arjenne’s approach is fully in line with the academic lifestyle that I promote, which is based on hard work during a limited number of hours, and then plenty of time to refresh and replenish, to keep your creative side happy and energized.

You can find books that I recommend in my Amazon store:
