The bottom line is this book is about WRITING the dissertation. It is focused on that topic. Whether you are a PhD student in the middle of your coursework, ABD, an adviser/committee member, someone teaching a graduate-level research writing seminar, or a family member/friend of someone who is working on their dissertation, you should get this book! You would be sorry if you did not.
“I wish I had this book to guide be through my master's degree! When I have my own students to advise, I would definitely make this book a required read.”
I am in the 6th year of my Ph.D. program, and I only wish I have had this book the first day when I admitted in the program…She makes the dissertation process more humane and realistic by recognizing other duties we have in life and shows you how to work around that. As a mom with a 3 years-old, this book give me the confidence that I finish my dissertation in a foreseeable future. Highly recommended!
Single has written an amazing book for both advisors and students alike. I would recommend this book to anyone who works with any graduate students who are considering continuing their studies and those who are already in a doctoral program.
