    Finished this - maybe a little later than I expected (the semester ended a month ago :p) but it's done. Overall not a bad book. It's easy to read and it provides a lot of food for thought in terms of what you should have in your dissertation proposal. It's also got some nifty checklists/rubrics at the end of most chapters to check your proposal against once you're done writing your first draft. As the book says - "There is not good writing, only good rewriting". Finished this - maybe a little later than I expected (the semester ended a month ago :p) but it's done. Overall not a bad book.
