Expert writing advice from the editor of the Boston Globe best-seller, The Writer's Home Companion Dissertation writers need strong, practical advice, as well as someone to assure them that their struggles aren't unique. Joan Bolker, midwife to more than one hundred dissertations and co-founder of the Harvard Writing Center, offers invaluable suggestions for the graduate-student writer. Using positive reinforcement, she begins by reminding thesis writers that being able to devote themselves to a project that truly interests them can be a pleasurable adventure. She encourages them to pay close attention to their writing method in order to discover their individual work strategies that promote productivity; to stop feeling fearful that they may disappoint their advisors or family members; and to tailor their theses to their own writing style and personality needs. Using field-tested strategies she assists the student through the entire thesis-writing process, offering advice on choosing a topic and an advisor, on disciplining one's self to work at least fifteen minutes each day; setting short-term deadlines, on revising and defing the thesis, and on life and publication after the dissertation. Bolker makes writing the dissertation an enjoyable challenge.… (mere)

Psycho-babble, I'm afraid. Everything that isn't common-sense is probably wrong. ( )

I picked this up at the UW bookstore because, I'm horribly, inexcusably behind on writing my dissertation and oh yes hahaha, surely 15 mins a day will do the trick. Clearly, the title is somewhat misleading--as Bolker admits--but the book does contain practical advice to help keep Scaredy Squirrels like me on track when we're too embarrassed to call up our committees for a little extra hand-holding.

[3.75/5] The premise of this book is to present a way to find out your own personal working rhythm, program and style so that you can finish an academic document (thesis /dissertation). Although Bolker does deliver on this promise, the book sometimes feels a bit useless, but not because it's actually bad. I believe that this book is best read twice: once as a regular book, and once more throughout the writing process itself, so that the otherwise excellent advice gets to your attention right when it's needed.

In general, there are many good things to come out of this book, and it's a good (and short enough) read for anyone looking forward to write a thesis. However, as the author says, it's not a magical formula and will require some elbow grease just to figure out what works best for every one. To be read in parts, through your dissertation writing process. ( )

This was perhaps the most practical and encouraging book I read during my doctoral work. The chapter concerning the beginning process of writing was as motivational as anything that I've read about writing. ( )
