Writing a doctoral dissertation is often viewed as an ordeal to tolerate and survive. This book looks at the dissertation in a different light, examining the dissertation project from several different perspectives with the aim of helping scholars understand the project better, work more effectively, and ultimately get the best of their dissertation. When you write your dissertation do you want to survive? Or do you want to thrive? Writing a dissertation requires a lot of time and effort and offers plenty of frustration, but it's not mindless drudgery. It may be difficult, but it can be interesting and personally rewarding. If you approach it right, writing a dissertation can be a positive experience that helps you develop skills that will serve you well whether you are going to pursue an academic or professional career. If you approach it right, you may experience the same satisfaction of learning and discovery that the Ancient Greeks called the love (philia) of wisdom (sophia), giving us our modern word "philosophy." Drawing on ideas from cognitive science, psychology, philosophy of science, and the study of design methods and processes, as well as the author's experience working with dissertation writers and other scholars, this book presents a series of perspectives on the dissertation aimed at helping you work more efficiently and effectively, with a better sense of purpose, and with more satisfaction. Subjects include fitting the dissertation into the rest of your life, developing a good writing practice, dealing with professors, designing research, and more. If you work more effectively and with a greater sense of purpose, you'll be able to finish more quickly and have a greater sense of the value of your efforts.

Eine glänzende Erzählung lässt uns die Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts über seine Musik neu erleben. Alex Ross, Kritiker des »New Yorker«, bringt uns aus dem Wien und Graz am Vorabend des Ersten Weltkriegs ins Paris und Berlin der Goldenen Zwanzigerjahre, aus Hitler-Deutschland über Russland ins Amerika der Sechziger- und Siebzigerjahre.

Und wir folgen dem Aufstieg der Massenkultur wie der Politik der Massen, den dramatischen Veränderungen durch neue Techniken genauso wie den Kriegen, Experimenten, Revolutionen und Aufständen der zurückliegenden 100 Jahre. »Eine unwiderstehliche Einladung, sich mit den großen Themen des 20.

Garr Reynolds ist wieder da. Autor des über 150.000 Mal verkauften Bestsellers über Präsentationsde- sign und Vortragskunst. Er zeigt uns in dieser neuen Auflage seines Klassikers "Zen oder die Kunst der Präsentation", dass man sein Publikum mit klarer Darstellung und guten Geschichten am besten erreicht. Garr greift die gängige Vorstellung von "Folienpräsentationen" an und zeigt, wie wir anregende und erfolgreichere Präsentationen gestalten und vortragen können. Er inspiriert mit neuen Beispielen und zeigt Techniken, mit denen wir Lärm und Ablenkung des modernen Lebens ausblenden und die Zuhörerschaft fesseln können. Garr verbindet seine Argumente mit den Lehren des Zen und weist damit den Weg zu einfache- ren und effektiven Präsentationen, die vom Publikum angenommen, erinnert und - vor allem - beherzigt werden. "Presentation Zen änderte mein Leben und das Leben meiner Kunden. Die Philosophie, die Garr in seinem Buch so elegant erläutert, wird Ihr Publikum inspirieren. Denken Sie nicht einmal daran, eine Präsentation ohne dieses Buch zu halten!" (Carmine Gallo, Autor von "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs") "Garr hat hinsichtlich der Art, wie wir über die Macht von Präsentationen denken, Neuland betreten. Noch wichtiger: Er hat eine ganze Generation von Kommunikatoren gelehrt, wie sie ihre Aufgabe besser erledigen. Verpassen Sie dieses Buch nicht." (Seth Godin, legendärer Präsentator und Autor von "We Are All Weird") "Wenn Ihnen Qualität und Klarheit Ihrer Präsentationen wichtig sind - und das sollten sie - nehmen Sie dieses Buch, lesen Sie jede Seite und beherzigen Sie seine Lehren. Presentation Zen ist ein zeitgenössischer Klassiker." (Daniel H. Pink, Autor von "Drive" und "Unsere kreative Zukunft")

I have purchased the ' Personalized Back Cover' option and this is the text that should appear at the back cover of my book: Is there room for yet another book on PhD-writing? Yes there is. Most of the available publications on this topic are contributions from professional academics, written from the perspective of supervisors or examiners rather than from that of successful candidates. Most of them are too long and not always user-friendly, while their approach is, more often than not, too scientific to be accessible to the average candidate. It is with these considerations in mind that the author, an average doctoral candidate who wrote his PhD thesis while working full-time, submitting his written work for examination within 24 months of becoming registered as a research student in one of the UK's top Law Schools, set out to write this book, which is, uniquely, written from a student's perspective. What makes of this work an original contribution is not the novelty of the topic addressed in it but, rather, its brevity, its practical approach, its simplicity, the background of its author (a recent, successful PhD candidate) and the motivation of its author: to help candidates complete their PhD thesis in under three years, as the author of this book did. This short book contains a wealth of practical advice and guidance on the issues involved in conceptualizing, organizing and writing your doctoral thesis so that you can increase your chances of surviving the ordeal of PhD thesis writing with the least amount of pain and with the minimum investment in terms of the time and effort spent pursuing your objective.
