- DescriptionI found this book brilliant, I had never undertaken anything like a dissertation before and this book had everything in it that I needed to kw. It is written in 'simple English' which is a bonus as some books are just too hard to understand. Everything you need to kw about writing your dissertation is in here. I would recommend this book to all levels. *****Review of the third edition from Amazon.co.uk How to Research is a bestselling, practical book that reassures the first time researcher by leading them systematically through the whole research process; from the initial meetings with a supervisor to critically evaluating their ideas, doing the research and finally writing up the project.
