    General (2010) 5.0 out of 5 starsThe best I've read on the topic March 10, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase As the titile of the book states, How To Tame Your PhD (Thesis Whispere Books) the author skillfully communicated just that! Having read the book I feel more confident now in pursing a PhD. Writing about her experiences was a plus as she spared no bones in being open and candid with her audience, this was very comforting. The recommended references and software that she shared was also pricless. I will certainly read other books by this Author.

    Thanks for sharing!! Helpful Comment Report abuse Leah MacVie 5.0 out of 5 starsstraight forward and helpful- August 12, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase This book is extremely straight forward, and that is what I like most about it. Mewburn not only affirmed much of the advice I have heard in bits and pieces along the way, but offered many new pointers as well. I bought this book in the Kindle version and read it on my phone, which I'll add, the book is nicely formatted for. I probably highlighted 50% of these pages. I can't wait to go back through to make note of them all. Helpful Comment Report abuse Emily 5.0 out of 5 starsWhere has this been all my (academic) life?!? February 13, 2013Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase I had been reading the Thesis Whisperer blog for just a few weeks when I discovered there was also a book. I immediately purchased the book and read it on my iPad. I have been working on my thesis for a very, very long time and needed some help figuring out how to organize my thoughts and to take notes. This book proved to be immensely helpful and gave me enough inspiration and guidance that I started to get excited about finishing my project.

    I would recommend this book to anyone working on any kind of large research project! There is so much that you don't learn in school that you have to somehow figure out on your own. This book will help you get your project done and will make you a better researcher and writer overall. Helpful Comment Report abuse David Hernández 3.0 out of 5 starsThe writing is nice and friendly but I just didn't get any new ... September 21, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase I really didn't get anything that I didn't know before hand by purchasing this book. The writing is nice and friendly but I just didn't get any new information or help.

    However, the reference section is absolutely marvelous. You can tell it was written by a PhD, since it is extremly well organized, written and have many many references and notes. I dind't enjoy the book, but the money it cost me was well spent just in the references. 2 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse janek85 5.0 out of 5 starsHighly recommended for all researchers December 1, 2012Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase I cannot highly enough recommend either this book or the blog upon which it is based. Straightforward and practical advice, without getting bogged in technical jargon that makes a head spin. The suggestions on getting your writing done quickly and effectively, along with giving presentations, dealing with procrastination, and not falling into traps and pitfalls makes this the first book I would refer every new Research Student towards. The author is also very approachable, and I recommend getting in touch for further discussion, hints, and discussion on higher education news.

    If only I had read it a month BEFORE I discontinued, rather than the other way round. Helpful Comment Report abuse E. N. Smith 3.0 out of 5 starsA nice distillation of the associated blog April 28, 2015Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase A nice distillation of the associated blog. Good general advice for avoiding procrastination and approaching common issues.

    Appears to be directed at mid- and late-stage PhD students, very much focused on the 'thesis' part of the PhD process.

    Unfortunately the missing and duplicated words errors mentioned by previous reviewers are distracting and undermine the quality of the advice.

    Worth reading for the price, but don't expect to find all the answers here. Helpful Comment Report abuse kevindpham 5.0 out of 5 starsa pleasure March 26, 2013Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase I start my Ph.D program in political science in a few months. Feeling a bit nervous and wanting some guidance, I hunt on amazon, stumble on this, thought 'what the heck. 4 bucks on kindle,' and then have an unexpected pleasurable evening, where my anxiety is mollified as I giggle like a child and also learn from Inger's funny and informative writing. The book was a playful and gentle hand introducing me to Ph.D land, one that left me more confident and excited for the next 4-6 years of my life. Helpful Comment Report abuse Aggie Wegner 5.0 out of 5 starsA highly useful resource December 21, 2012Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase This book was needed not only for PhD students but also their supervisors. It clearly outlines the challenges, pitfalls, emotional ups and downs and the key of completing this (sometimes dreaded) PhD - persistence. The messages are very accessible and draws on the author's own experiences.

    Having this casual and open and honest writing style allows students to easily relate to the messages and apply the recommendations. Students I've recommended this book to commented positively about the help they could already draw from the book. Helpful Comment Report abuse See all 51 reviews Write a customer review
