This book is incredible! I wish I had read it at the beginning of my dissertation. Natalya clearly and lovingly demystifies much of the PhD writing process and her words of encouragement and wisdom cut deep as she explores myths and roadblocks that hinder the dissertation writing experience. This book offers so many tools and resources for graduate students and is a must read for all doctoral students, as well as their supervisors!
