Review:

I just wanted to say what a wonderful guide your book has been through my entire thesis writing experience. I referenced your book through every chapter and as I begin to write the last chapter, I honestly feel that I wouldn't feel as confident with my draft if not for your writing. It has a perfect balance of humor, motivation, realistic expectations, and wonderful examples. I especially appreciated your examples and instructions for the SPSS software interpretations.
