The book was in excellent condition, and the book itself is really
great - it's very easy to read, and has helped me so much with the planning
off my final year project. It's laid out really well, and isn't written
in really heavy language like a lot of psychology books. I love the handy
tips it gives throughout the chapters, and also the inclusion of the actual
experiences of students and supervisors. This book was worth every cent
I paid for it.
