Review:

"The authors write from the position of the ideal mentor, presenting the issues doctoral students would like their chairpersons to discuss with them, yet rarely have done. Additionally, the student perspective is integrated into the text through numerous examples from a wide range of disciplines." 

Author: Marilyn M. Irwin Source: The Library Quarterly

"This book was my bible going through my dissertation. The authors’ clarity of writing and comprehensive thought allowed me to easily take the principles off the pages and put them into practice. I highly recommend it!" 

Author: Dennis S. Reina, Ph.D.

"A must for anyone considering graduate school. While the entire book is extremely helpful, the author′s frequent use of charts, tables, lists and questions is an especially effective method to organize and summarize information. This book is also a worthwhile resource for those crafting and writing a thesis or dissertation... a practical and well-designed work that I highly recommend."
