A stupendous and scintillating work which is extremely helpful for academics and research scholars in the social sciences. The book guides you through the process of making academic writing coherent and lucid." -- Rahul Mukand Nygaard gets at the heart of the challenge of academic writing, providing solutions for scholars of all levels working to hone their craft and effectively and efficiently communicate their research. She accomplishes all this while being a competent and oftentimes humorous chaperone on the endeavor. -- Cyanne E. Loyle This book has taken my papers from rejected to accepted, by providing hands-on and to the point advice on how to structure and sharpen both my thoughts and arguments. It is packed with valuable insights that take you through every stage of the writing process, making it an exceptional tool for everyone engaged in academic scholarship. -- Synove N. Andersen Lynn Nygaard provides valuable, often amusing advice for scholarly writers. Although many scholars dread having to publish, this comprehensive and well-organized book will help them to overcome their hesitation. Written in engaging reader-friendly language the book will be indispensable to both first-time writers and those who are already published in academia -- Jill R. Hughes This book is entertaining, inspiring and peppered with illustrating examples which trigger multiple epiphanies about your own writing and scholarly work. A stimulating pep-talk from an editor, a personal coach, and a peer - all in one book. Essential reading for Ph.D. students as well as for established scholars. -- Marte Nilsen This is a highly accessible book, full of useful advice. I have always recommended it to doctoral students, and the new edition is even better. -- Charlie Owen
