This book will basically inform you on how to layout your dissertation and will answer the questions you mean to ask but never do when meeting your supervisor like "what is the difference between a dissertation and a thesis". As well as the layout issues discussed, it also illustrates what the components of a dissertation are and what they should contain. If you are struggling for a topic, do not buy this book expecting miracles - they don't happen, but if you want to have a guide for organising your layout and discovering what the components of a good dissertation should be - then buy it.

This book deals mostly with putting your thesis together. It has chapters on how things like the title page, abstract, acknowledgements, bibliography, etc should look like. That's Part 1. Part 2 makes a very short effort at trying to motivate you called "getting your act together" and Part 3 is called "Nuts and Bolts" dealing with...well...you know. There are chapters on page size, page margins, references, notes, quotations, etc. Most chapters are barely 2 pages long. The whole book is 96 pages. This book is probably better taken out from the library because it takes about an hour to read cover to cover and you could just jot down notes concerning the stuff you need.
