"Fifteen minutes!" you say. "That's too good to be true!" Okay, author Joan Bolker admits she gave her book the title Writing Your Dissertation in Fifteen Minutes a Day to get the reader's attention. And she admits that it's unlikely you'll actually finish a dissertation at that speed. As she tells her clients, however, a mere 15 minutes is much better than no writing at all when they're stuck. As a clinical psychologist who cofounded the Harvard Writing Center, Bolker has helped hundreds of writers complete their dissertations. She offers suggestions on how to create a writing addiction so that you feel incomplete if you don't write every day and stresses the need to set reasonable goals and deadlines for yourself to keep from getting discouraged. She also offers strategies for dealing with both internal and external distractions and for fending off writer's block. Even more important is the advice on some of the more awkward issues related to dissertation writing, such as how to choose your adviser carefully. (For example, when faced with the tradeoff between a famous advisor who is inaccessible and a less famous advisor who is willing to make time for you, Bolker advises, "If choosing a politically advantageous, famous advisor makes it unlikely that you'll complete your degree, it's clearly not worth it.") The book even includes a helpful appendix for advisers that could become the basis for an honest discussion of what student and adviser can expect from each other. Throughout this excellent book, Bolker acts as a therapist, cheerleader, and drill sergeant, all rolled into one.

While some of the book's advice is of interest only to dissertation writers, much of the information--on battling writer's block, for instance--is valuable to anybody engaged in writing. Rather than being filled with rules defining how to become a great writer, Writing Your Dissertation in Fifteen Minutes a Day is about finding the process by which you can be the most productive--it's a set of exercises that you can use to find out more about you and the way you write. Along the way, you'll do a bit of writing. And that's what matters, especially when you experience writer's block--as Bolker says, "Write anything, because writing is writing." With its helpful advice and supportive tone, Writing Your Dissertation in Fifteen Minutes a Day should be required reading for anyone considering writing a dissertation. --C.B. Delaney

4.0 von 5 Sternen It helped me turn in a thesis 13. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Joan Bolker's book can be a very big help for those people like me who have ten different things going on at once, one of which is a long-term paper. I bought this to help me complete my Master's thesis on the recommendation of a few people.
I credit this book with helping me prioritize things when it came time for the actual writing of the paper.
The 15 minutes a day title is a little bit deceptive, however. The program does not necessarily amount to 15 minutes per day strictly. And, that can be unrealistic anyway. I had actually tried a regimen like that before. But, while it can work for awhile, it can be very difficult to maintain depending on one's work schedule or environment.
The biggest help in the book for me (and why I rate it somewhat highly) is that it helped me establish a workable scheudule with my professor. I ended offering some suggestions to my professor as to how often we discussed the paper, etc., and it worked out nicely for both of us. I think when it comes down to it, you can examine the information in this book but tailor it to what your professor expects.
I can say that Bolker's book helped me in eventually turning in my Master's thesis. But, keep in mind that 98% of thesis work (particularly while having a demanding work schedule) is going to be one's own determination and commitment. And, this book is not going to provide that for you!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Solid advice about WRITING 2. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I teach writing, yet I am having a horrible time finishing my dissertation. This book helped me recognize what I know about writing--with the exception of "park on the downhill slope," every bit of advice given in this book is advice I have given my own first-year students, students I tutor in the writing center, and other graduate students. I *know* it's good counsel because I've seen it work! I guess I just needed to hear it from an expert, but now that I have I'm tearing through these last chapters, confidently (most of the time). Don't expect a start-to-finish how-to guide for completing a dissertation, this is about WRITING it.

Von Flowtext
Format:Taschenbuch
Das Versprechen des Titels, eine Dissertation in 15 Minuten am Tag zu schreiben, ist zwar nicht wörtlich zu verstehen, es spiegelt jedoch die Kernthese der Autorin wider, mit konstanter, möglichst täglicher Arbeit zum Ziel zu gelangen und seien es manchmal lediglich 15 Minuten pro Tag. Das Buch versteht sich als Begleiter durch ein solches Projekt beginnend mit der Themenfindung, der Suche nach Prüfern über die Datenerhebung bzw. Untersuchungsphase hin zum Prozess des Schreibens und schließlich zur Abgabe. Zu jeder dieser Phasen steht die Autorin mit hilfreichen und praxisnahen Tipps zur Seite in klarer, verständlicher Sprache auf wenigen Seiten. Letzteres ermöglicht es tatsächlich das Buch immer wieder auch in großen Drucksituationen zur Hand zu nehmen, ohne Zeit für die eigentliche Arbeit zu verlieren. Darüber hinaus thematisiert Bolker auch das Scheitern bzw. die vielen problematischen und zermürbenden Situationen, in die man während einer Doktorarbeit gelangen kann, und zeigt aus ihren eigenen Erfahrungen schöpfend, wie man ein Scheitern abwendet.
Allerdings gilt es zu beachten, dass einige Kapitel, wie das der Prüfersuche, auf das us-amerikanische Prozedere ausgerichtet sind. Dies hat aber auf den Schreibprozess und die Themenentwicklung keinen Einfluss.
Insgesamt ist es eine lohnende Anschaffung und gute Unterstützung.

5.0 von 5 Sternen START NOW 17. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
When I first saw the book a strong urge came over me to get it. My inner critic said, what for? You're not a Phd candidate. Sure, you're writing a paper for a masters program but it isn't the same as a dissertation. Don't waste your money.
The argument was sound but the book's call was much stronger. I purchased it. It was the best investment that I had made. Whether you are a Phd candidate trying to get your dissertation done or a wannabe intimidated by the thought of having to write one, this book must be on your required reading list!
If you have successfully completed high school, college and graduate school (masters level) then you have already written your fair share of papers. You have the technical and disciplined skills to write. Well then, what is the problem in doing a dissertation?
Bolker teaches one about learning how to develop a process of writing that is best for you. Once done she moves you from the process to the basic mechanics of getting the dissertation done. It is never to late in getting a head start on learning how to finish your doctoral thesis even before you are accepted into a Phd program. Start Now! The book is a tremendous stimulator.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting tips 25. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
When I read the title of this book I couldn't believe it - fifteen minutes a day! I then bought it and found it very interesting and amusing. I must say however that the book hinges sometimes on simple good sense or says something that the student perceives the minute he gets into grad school. This book is very recommended if you don't have a clue on what you'll do next and you really need some advice. It is also great if you haven't had any contact with the "academic culture" before you entered graduate school.
