great for the basics

The book provided explanation of key terms, transitional phrases, and major components of dissertation. Very useful in getting 25 to 30 percent of the dissertation complete.

Very Helpful

Would you listen to Dissertations Made Manageable again? Why?

I have listened to the audible book at least 8 times. The author's insight was very helpful. Because of the complexity of a dissertation project, it is not a book you will listen to only once. I am also using the book for writing my book. So it will not be the last time I listen to the book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Simple and not overly complex. Good keys to being successful.

Did Paul Holbrook do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

N/A

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The author offered to assist readers with personal assistance.

short but helpful

Gives concise and clear tips for dissertation writing. Will come in handy throughout the research process as it can remind us about "rookie errors"
