4.0 out of 5 stars Informative - A good insider's view, 14 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Write to the Top!: How to Be a Prolific Academic! (Paperback)
Johnson and Mullen share their experience and the experience of more advanced colleagues about the process of writing academically. There is a lot to do with the circumstances surrounding the writing activity, and also many advices, in particular to nurture truly sincere human relationships which support and help with writing, possibly leading to collaborative projects.

It is somewhat less hands-on than some other books about academic writing, but it is still an inspiring, informed and informative read.
