He really understands what a student needs to do and clearly outlines how to start and finish and what needs to be done in between." (Cal Hauserman, Principal)
"The Portable Dissertation Advisor is an excellent source for educators writing their dissertation. It is clear and precise." (Joan Bowman, Principal)
