It helped me turn in a thesis
am 13. Juli 2000
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!
