Excellent, easy-to-use resource on developing, or supporting the development of a qualitative dissertation. The appendix with the rubric for chapter development is great. I circulate it often to students and other key stakeholders.
This book not only provides excellent guidance on writing a qualitative dissertation, it also includes information and discussion of how to plan, design, and conduct a qualitative research study (i.e., it is helpful for qualitative methodology and methods, not just writing).
Written with a clarity, this book serves as a "how to" guide to write the first three chapters of a dissertation, regardless of method.
