I remember with fondness the advice Martin Krieger gave me when I was writing The Second Self and my tenure case was soon to come up. He said, 'Write every day, you can always revise later.'

Freedman Stanford University, author of No Turning Back and Redefining Rape)

In any case, this is the best academic manual I have ever read; I'm learning more than I did in many years of schooling and am aware of issues my advisors never cared to mention so this is an extremely helpful book
