Excellent. A concise, `task analytic' presentation of the complex steps necessary in writing literature reviews.

A wonderful step-by-step guide to the writing process. This book has an invaluable checklist for students who are writing literature reviews.

Literature reviews are high stressors for even the most accomplished students. This text greatly alleviates their anxiety with clarity, organization, examples, and easy-to-understand `How to' tips. I won't teach research without it!

Exceptional book-the only one in the field that actually helps students do the review and succeed at it.
