Industry Reviews
"It is extremely readable and candid. As a faculty [member], I want students to know the 'real deal'. The approach offered in this book provides one that is holistic realizing that our students are people with lives that influence the dissertation process. The Tracesea sections came at the right time when I was going to ask the very same question. Multiple voices of student and faculty add a wonderful dynamic. Love the use of PowerPoint slides, which would help me tremendously in my dissertation seminar." -- Gretchen McAllister
"I really like the detail, experiences, reflections by students, and layout." -- Gene Gloeckner
