    Priceless assistance for doctoral students!

    Dr. Levasseur's new book, Dissertation Research: An Integrative Approach, is the second book in a series on how to be successful in the quest for a doctorate. His first book, Student to Scholar: The Guide for Doctoral Students, focused on those factors that would enhance the quality of doctoral students' work while accelerating their progress toward the achievement of a PhD or other doctoral degree.
    Written in the same reader-friendly way, Dissertation Research focuses on the final, capstone project of the doctoral journey, providing an integrative framework for finding a doable, researchable dissertation topic and developing it step-by-step into a high quality dissertation that moves as quickly as possible through the many faculty reviews required to ensure that the final dissertation meets the exacting standards established for approval and entry into the academy.
    Whether you are contemplating what a dissertation entails before deciding to enroll in a doctoral program, are in the early stages of your doctoral program, or are working on some aspect of your dissertation, Dissertation Research will provide you with the specific information you need and examples of how to apply it to maximize your chances for success.

    Outstanding and Practical Book!

    Dr. Robert Levasseur's step-by-step method through the dissertation process is a phenomenal and certain way to reduce the time and cost required to attain a doctoral degree. As a senior leader in a multi-billion dollar healthcare organization with an incredibly busy calendar, I personally benefitted from his scholarly yet practical and time-saving approach to academic success--beginning with a clear explanation of the steps and research requirements all the way through dissertation defense and publication.

    Dr. Levasseur developed his approach with a seemingly record-setting completion of his own Ph.D., and perfected it in his roles as mentor, committee member, and committee chair for many dozens of doctoral students. This superb book, Dissertation Research: An Integrative Approach, captures that perfected process in a way that will help any student maximize his or her return on this important academic investment. I know--I'm living proof that it works!

    Michael Miller, Ph.D.
