In this short book, Dr. Inger Mewburn, founder and editor of The Thesis Whisperer blog, shares her secrets for becoming a more productive researcher and writer. Inger finished her award-winning PhD in three years – despite having a small child, husband and demanding academic job. This book is a selection of her blog posts on thesis writing, which have been re-edited and expanded to just over 36,000 words. This book introduces you to Inger’s most important success strategies for getting your PhD finished and acts a companion to The Thesis Whisperer blog.

All proceeds from this book go towards Thesis Whisperer running costs. Thank you for enabling me to purchase much needed equipment and software.

Any money earned above costs is donated to a range of charities, including UN Women, The Peter Macallum Cancer Foundation and Market Forces campaign ‘UniSuper Divest’ – a campaign to stop academic superannuation being used to buy fossil fuel shares.
