As a professional educator seeking an advanced degree at an advanced age, I have been impressed by Creswell's ability to explain the process of writing a dissertation. The format of the chapters in the book make it easy to use as a template for constructing a dissertation proposal and, ultimately, the dissertation. Well done!

My only reservation is that it is limited unnecessarily to the social sciences. The advice would apply to a broader set of academic disciplines. Lots of good examples.

This was a text used for one of my doctoral classes. I found this to be one of the best and practical books to explain basics to doctoral research design.

I was forced to read this book for a graduate methodology course at Harvard. This is a verbose text on how to write an academically acceptable research paper. It overtly accepts all the suppositions of the academic writing process, many of which are highly debatable, while thoroughly venerating highbrow academia¿s proclivity for political correctness and leftism. Some portions border on the ridiculous and literally outright laughable with respect to how pedantic they are. The only reason this book was written, as he himself notes implicitly at one point, was that someone was going to write it. The simple lack of an authoritative text on graduate research methods begged for someone to hammer out 230+ pages of nonsense. Then again, ¿John W. Creswell is a Professor of Educational Psychology at Teachers College, University of Nebraska-Lincoln,¿ so it not like this pursuit comes as a big surprise. If you find the Chicago Manual of Style to be intriguing and edifying, and / or you are a total tool of the academic system, then this book is for you¿
