Author April Taylorabout this book: Last year an extremely intelligent young man, the son of a close friend, was almost at the point of giving up because he could not sort out how to write his university dissertation. I was horrified that such an erudite articulate student could be permitted by his university professors to get into such a state over a piece of work that, though vital to his degree, is at heart quite a simple thing. When I spoke to him, I discovered that he had more than enough research to write several dissertations, but that several things were holding him back. One of these was the lack of consistency in the instructions given to the students about how to write and what to write.

The net result was that over the course of one weekend, this young man and I sat down and I showed him and explained in simple language how to approach the subject, how to write it and how to put it all together into one academic piece of writing. One weekend clarified everything that the previous four months had clouded. My young friend came out of university with a first. I have a copy of his dissertation, and very good it is.

This short guide - only about 10,000 words - explains clearly and in easily understood sections how to set out your dissertation, how to write in a 'scholarly' way, how to manipulate the software, concentrating on MS Word and what to do if you get stuck. It also deals with managing your time and pacing yourself as you work through the project. if you are a student or the parent of a student about to embark on the ship "Dissertation", take this e-book along with you as a lifeboat.
