A Manual for Writersof Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations
I was assigned to read this through during my senior year at Ohio State in preparation for my undergraduate research thesis under Dr. Rachel Garshick Kleit. Just so well written, so insightful, one of the better instructional books I've ever read. That final semester was also maybe one of the most fulfilling in my academic career. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to write durably.
