    Guides students every step of the way.

    As someone who works privately with students, helping them with theses and dissertations, I highly recommend this book. When students contact me in regard to assistance with their thesis or dissertation, I recommend that they use this book as a reference. As the title states, this book guides students through the planning, research, and writing process, every step of the way, from proposal to completion.
