Reviews

The key word in the title - and what sets it apart from its rivals - is the word `inspirational'. This is not another dry textbook, setting out how to produce a PhD thesis and avoid the perils of plagiarism, shoddy references or grammatical errors. -- Frontline magazine, Chartered Society of Physiotherapy 'Bolton and Rowland's honesty and first-hand experiences of academic writing bring this book to life and make it highly engaging. It offers solid advice in an accessible manner to the writer who wishes to bring the kernel of an idea to fruition through academic publication.' -- Dr. Mairead Seymour 'The conversation that is Bolton and Rowland's text reminds the reader and writer alike of the necessary blend of persistence and joy that moves us along the writing continuum of procrastination to inspiration. Their honest accounts of their own writing journeys, and their shared experiences of working with other writers at all levels, are pragmatic, informative, reassuring and engaging.' -- Dr. Alison Farrell 'A fun and inspirational sweep through territory not always considered within the parameters of academic writing. The three phase frame of writing for self, redrafting for the reader and editing is generative and functional. This text is enormously accessible with its author dialogues, fictional characters, anecdotes, scholarly approach and valuable reading and writing activities. ' -- Claire Aitchison 'This excellent book justifies its title. It takes the aspirant writer from their research ideas and early writing (the authors suggest this should be experimental) to the production of the final edited text. Beautifully written, by authors who care, it is an invaluable resource for Doctoral students and newer writers and speaks to everyone who values good academic writing.' -- Professor Sue Clegg
