Review quote

"Dunleavy illuminates the management of text. Following his recommended disciplines, he has produced an elegant, witty and spare guide for the perplexed student."--Herman Schwartz, University of Virginia ""Authoring a PhD Thesis" is superb. It is so in three ways: tone; nature of the advice offered; the fact that the book itself is an exemplary illustration of the principles it recommends. After reading it, it is hard to see how many PhD students ever managed to write an acceptable thesis without reading it."--John Peck, Cardiff University "Pleasantly written, containing a lot of helpful suggestions, sound advice, and illuminating insights into the process of writing a thesis."--Giseline Kuipers, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands ..".elegantly written and contains crisp and incisive insights. I will recommend this book widely to students because it will help them significantly with the successful completion of their PhD thesis...I have gained some good ideas from reading the text."--Wyn Grant, Warwick University
