This work evolved from 15 years' experience of teaching thesis writing. The contents have been tried and tested with postgraduates and academics. Early chapters explore the ambiguities and subtleties of thesis writing in detail. Later chapters are more compact, listing steps in the writing process. All chapters provide examples to illustrate techniques and activities to progress writing. When you write a thesis be ready to develop new modes of writing. The harsh reality is that: if you like to work to goals, you are likely to have to submit to floundering around, reconstructing your well laid plans; Whilst if you are the kind of person who hates to be driven by goals, or does not see the point of them, you will have to submit to deadlines and milestones that may seem like millstones. This book should help you cope with the challenges inherent in writing your thesis.

This is an invaluable book for both students and supervisors. It is comprehensive in its range and impressive in its awareness of the demands of different disciplines. There is no doubt that every PhD student will find something of value here, and most will find the entire book and indispensable companion, and the source of much wisdom during their long journey towards their PhD." - Linda Dryden Napier Teaching Fellows Journal 20030303
