I enjoyed reading this book and found it to be an excellent resources, especially since I am currently writing my dissertation. The lessons are exceptional and I wished had this book about 2 years earlier as it would have saved me some headaches along the way. I really liked the chapters on literature review and methodologies as these were some of the more difficult ones for me. Overall, highly recommended for the practical advice and upbeat tone.
