About the Author:

Bradley N. Axelrod, PhD, is the director of neuropsychological and psychological assessment services at the John D. Dingell Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He has published extensively in the area of psychometric analysis of neuropsychological and psychological test measures. He provides clinical training to psychology interns, and also provides research support to graduate students while serving on dozens of master’s thesis and doctoral dissertation committees.

James Windell, MA, has been a court psychologist in the Oakland County Circuit Court’s Family Division in Oakland County, Michigan, where he provides group therapy for delinquents and divorced co-parents with high conflicts. He is the author or co-author of fifteen books on parenting, medicine, and high-conflict divorce.

Review:

Dissertation Solutions gives the broad strokes and fine points of how the dissertation actually works, on stage and behind the scenes, by using student accounts of dissertation successes, tragedies, and sagas. For those students who are stuck, fear getting delayed, or need to obsess about the dissertation constructively while anticipating it or procrastinating on it, this is a must read. Dissertation Solutions is a very practical guide that will tell students some of what you already know and some of what you don’t want to hear, it will help you hear it, and help you navigate the real-world messiness of the dissertation process. There’s something for every student. Give it a read for its ability to motivate you, provide useful information, and convey wisdom. (Melissa Grey, assistant professor of psychology, Monroe County Community College; adjunct clinical supervisor, Eastern Michigan University; committee chair, Michigan Psychological Association Early Career Psychologists; and volunteer, Michigan Project for Informed Public Policy)

Dissertation Solutions is a gold mine of sound advice for students planning to undertake a master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation. With an engaging writing style and interesting anecdotes, the authors provide a road map of the most practical paths to success. The tasks that must be completed are discussed in considerable detail and the most common land mines and dead ends to avoid are clearly presented. This is a must read for graduate students in psychology and the behavioral sciences. (Joseph J. Ryan, professor and chair emeritus, department of psychological science, University of Central Missouri, Warrensburg, Missouri)

Dissertation Solutions promises to be a very helpful guide for graduate students in clinical, counseling, and school psychology. Even for those few students who have published as an undergraduate and no longer aspire to a Nobel Prize type of dissertation, the sections on preparing for a dissertation defense and the sections on selecting one’s advisor and committee members add to the strengths of this book. In addition, the section on approaching the defense of one’s thesis or dissertation adds relevant information. I think graduate students will like this book! (Norman Abeles, professor of psychology emeritus and former director of psychology clinic (1978-2004), Michigan State University)

Dissertation Solutions is an excellent resource for students . . . who are working on their dissertation, a major milestone in graduate education. This book takes the complexity of undertaking a dissertation and helps students breakdown the process into manageable steps. . . . This book can aid students in flourishing with their dissertation project. Moreover, Dissertation Studies not only deals with the dissertation research and writing, but deals with some of the problems that may arise from working on such a major project. It offers practical advice and provides motivation and support. . . . Students will benefit from this book. While the primary audience is for doctoral students, I would recommend the book for students working on Master essays and theses. There is no such thing as having too much information when undertaking the capstone event for a graduate degree. (Eric Lambert, professor and chair, department of criminal justice, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan)
