Secrets for a Successful Dissertation


March 1998 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Practical, comprehensive, and readable, Secrets for a Successful Dissertation is designed for doctoral candidates at or near the beginning of the dissertation stages of their academic programs. Combining humor with actual student stories, Secrets offers the doctoral candidate a poignant and motivational guide to assist in hurtling the perils of each dissertation phase. Each chapter offers a view of the dissertation process that is beyond the academic and addresses the emotional and mental stresses that often accompany the process itself. Secrets for a Successful Dissertation is meant to encourage each doctoral candidate toward beating the overwhelming odds of "ABD-dom." Doctoral candidates will find Secrets a book that provides a sense of reality and a "road map" with helpful hints not often told to students by any faculty.


Very practically written easy read for a dissertation student, especially highlighting the mental and emotional stresses accompanying the process of academic writing.

Students did not find the book easy to use and have requested a more concise text on dissertation writing.
