All dissertation writers search for practical hands-on advice. The Portable Dissertation Advisor offers that advice in a clear, readable, never overwhelming style. In addition, dissertation writers, particularly those involved in distance education, seek someone to assure them that their struggles are neither unique nor insurmountable. Miles Bryant is a faculty member at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Bryant teaches a course in the development of the doctoral dissertation and has worked with hundreds of doctoral students over the span of his career. This experience has helped him to write a book that is specifically aimed at distance and part-time doctoral students. Finding a topic, choosing a research design, writing a literature review, and presenting your proposal are some of the key topics covered in this book. But beyond the practical advice, Bryant goes a step farther. By the time you finish this book, you will not only have a solid handle on the task in front of you, you will also feel as though your fears and trepidations are understood, you have found a sympathetic and understanding guide through the dark forest that is the mighty dissertation.
