Are you having difficulty finishing your dissertation? Are you feeling stuck after trying various approaches, or panicky about the entire enterprise? If so, it is unlikely that your cognitive abilities are to blame. More likely, the culprits are anxiety, self-doubt, procrastination, perfectionism, and the thoughts, feelings, and behavior that accompany these difficulties. This book was written to help you overcome these problems and finish your dissertation once and for all.Combining psychological support with a project management approach that breaks tasks into small, manageable chunks, experienced dissertation coach Alison Miller shows you how to overcome negativity and succeed beyond your own expectations. You will learn how to plan and structure the dissertation process, work effectively with dissertation chairpersons and committees, and take care of yourself on the dissertation journey. Tips for mastering all of these skills are presented along with exercises to reinforce key lessons, ideas, and strategies.

By the end of the process, you will not only have finished your dissertation - you will also have learned the self-confidence that comes from knowing how to stay engaged when difficulties arise and the joy that comes from accomplishment in pursuit of your personal values.

Ich habe das Buch empfohlen bekommen und es ist inhaltlich sicherlich gut. Die ebook-Version kann ich allerdings nicht empfehlen, weil große Teile nicht angezeigt werden. Das ist bei dem Preis mehr als ärgerlich. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn hier nachgebessert würde.

Life Changing 25. August 2009
Von Tracy Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Thank God I came across this book and the author in my desperation for a resource to help me get on track to even working on my dissertation.

The book clued me into everything that was getting in my way, and started me down a path where I can actually see how I will eventually finish this project. I'm afraid to think of where I would be, or should I say, not be, if I hadn't discovered this book.

December 13th. I am adding to my earlier review.

In my online courseroom today I stated the following to my classmates:

I can honestly say I lost what likely adds up to a few months, simply because I didn't know what I didn't know, and that made me very uncomfortable, so that the act of sitting down to work on this project felt like an exercise in pain avoidance. A book I can recommend that changed all of that for me is called

"Finish Your Dissertation Once and for All!: How to Overcome Psychological Barriers, Get Results, and Move on With Your Life"
~ Alison B. Miller

What once used to feel like a hate/hate relationship with my dissertation now feels like a Like/Like relationship that is bordering on a Like/Love relationship :)

Do yourself a favor and read this book.

for people who weren't born knowing how to write a dissertation 1. November 2009
Von KB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book contains everything Alison Miller learned through years of professional dissertation coaching--knowledge that I desperately needed as an 8th-year PhD student who had yet to produce a single chapter. Here's my advice: 1) Buy this book. 2) Read the first 50 pages and realize that you are not a failure as a graduate student just because you aren't having an easy time with the incredibly difficult process of writing a dissertation. 3) Go all out with the daily & weekly workplans she recommends--it might seem like an artificial process at first, but it's a process that now keeps me writing, and something I'm planning on doing for the rest of my career. Good luck!

Great book for all learners 3. Februar 2009
Von Jennifer Lynn Collins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
What this book has helped me realize is that over the years I have piled on negative emotions, thoughts, and behaviors about being a student that have now become an obstacle course for me as I finish my dissertation. What brought me to this book was frustration - I have been a student who has been motivated to learn from fear and this fear has driven my work patterns. This is not learning and this is not living. These patterns are ineffective and I want my life back.

This book has given me the tools to recognize: 1. many many people experience similar blocks when they really want to complete something. 2. certain patterns of behaviors are linked to certain patterns of emotions that I have believed. 3. I don't have to believe these emotions or behaviors - I can recognize the pattern and choose differently. I have used these tools to get through some major dissertation hurdles quickly.

It does not matter if you are writing your dissertation, you are beginning a bachelor's degree, or you are trying to learn a new language or tackle projects around the house. I have recommended this book to many people - including several who aren't in school. The bottom line is about learning and about recognizing how your potential has been unwittingly covered up by thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that you have unconsciously chosen. Buy this book! Get your life back!

A boon for proscrastinators 16. Mai 2009
Von Nimish - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Though there are a lot of writing guides out there, what distinguishes this one is the discussion of emotional stumbling that are particular to the disseration writing process. The author knows the nature of the beast and the mind of a graduate student very well. I particularly liked the way she brings insights rational-emotive therapy to help her readers overcome insecurities that are typical among budding scholars. If procrastination is your problem, this book is written for you. I have greatly increased my writing output by following the ideas in her book, particularly the one about creating daily Action Plans.

Finish Your Dissertawtion Once and For All 10. Februar 2009
Von Amanda J. Flagg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Alison Miller has been my personal dissertation coach for over 2 years. Without her insights, attention to how I deal with issues, and her masterful ways of listening to me - then redirecting how I think about issues; I would not be close to finishing my dissertation - Summer of 09.
Alison provides a fresh approach to students who become entangled with life's frequent, if not constant interruptions. These distractions provide easy excuses that allow for procrastination that often pitches students into a downward spiral of hopelessness instead of success. Alison opened my eyes with this book by acknowledging that I am not the only student who may entertain feelings along a spectrum of negativity. Of equal importance are her directions on building timelines - a key intervention that I stubbornly fought against until I applied her suggestions and found that my stress levels were cut in half and I actually accomplished far more and enjoyed the experience. The content of this entire book is very worth while - however other highlights that personally spoke to me was the need to overcome perfectionism, working with your dissertation chair, and the final chapter centered on taking care of yourself! Thank you Alison - I will use this with future endeavors!
