'This is a practical and engaging guide to completing a dissertation or thesis. Drawing on the author's extensive experience and expertise, the book contains a raft of insights, hints and tips. It will be of great value to all post-graduate students of nursing and midwifery.'

-- David Barrett, Deputy Head of Department of Nursing, University of Hull

Writing is at the heart of academic life. Through this concise guide, Dena Bain Taylor has not only provided an invaluable resource for graduate students learning to master writing and critical thinking, she has provided excellent suggestions for navigating the realms of presenting and publishing.

-- Elizabeth Peter, Associate Professor in the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto
The author draws on her own extensive experience and expertise to present the reader with practical strategies for each stage of the writing process from the initial critical reading through to submission of the final piece of work. The book has been written in a straightforward, user friendly style that takes the post graduate student through the process of writing each chapter of their dissertation/thesis through to some excellent suggestions for preparing for the viva. I would recommend this as essential reading for post graduate nursing and healthcare related students. -- Moyra Journeaux, Senior Lecturer, Nursing and Midwifery, Higher Education Department, in partnership with the University of Chester, Health and Social Services, Jersey
