5.0 out of 5 stars 7 articles of information about your first book, September 9, 2008
This review is from: The Thesis and the Book: A Guide for First-Time Academic Authors (Paperback)
I'm at the stage now in my career as a historian. Rather than simply send in the dissertation to a publisher, which I feared might be poorly viewed in academia and not be my best work for future reference, I set it aside for about six months. Then I talked to my committee and got their input. The result was contact to a former editor in my field who recommended three books: "The Thesis and the Book" was one of these. By and large these seven essays offer good advice and solid examples I think I can follow. Basically I have to rethink how I was thinking about my subject and write what I would have originally wanted to write had it not be so incumbent on me to prove every stage of my research. I read this book slowly, letting each essay set in my mind and taking notes. I wanted to internalize the processes these authors were suggesting to make the revisions flow more smoothly.
