Synopsis

"Authoring a PhD Thesis" involves the development of creative ideas, working out how to organize them, writing up from your plans, upgrading your text, and finishing it speedily and to a good standard. It also includes being examined and getting your work published. This title provides a huge range of ideas and suggestions to help you cope with both the intellectual issues involved and the practical difficulties of organizing your work effectively. It is a useful and time-saving aid for doctoral students and their supervisors, and should also interest anyone writing creative non-fiction.
