As a first year PhD student, the idea of the literature review was pretty daunting to me personally. I had trouble creating a framework in my mind to guide me through reading/writing. This book was a life-saver. The examples are very practical, it honestly took a lot of stress off my mind. I will begin using the guides suggested in my writings. Highly recommended, and a big thank you to the authors.

I read this text for a post-graduate course. As someone with a degree in writing, the book was only moderately helpful, though I can imagine that it would be helpful for those with less background in writing. There is a worksheet the guide the critical analysis of a work that I have found repeatedly helpful. As I move forward with my post-graduate education, I envision using it again and again.

Quite a helpful guide but it's a bit more on reading and planning than writing.

A really well organised and simple to follow guide on postgraduate writing. There is a large focus on critical reviews and dissertations, I would have liked a bit more on the skills of essay writing - but I expect there is not so much of that at this level.
It also has the added bonus of additional content online, including templates of the forms that it refers to and uses in the book.
