How to Write a Good Dissertation - A Guide for University Undergraduate Students is an essential reference guide for university undergraduate student and anyone who wishes to write at professional level. Every undergraduate student will at some point be required to write a dissertation, project, a portfolio or thesis. This could be daunting and having gone through that experience myself, I thought a book like this would be helpful to students around the world. I have tried to keep it concise, succinct, and as brief as much as possible; the last thing a student need is reading a lengthy guide on how to write their onerous project. Most of the chapters cover topics every student will find useful regardless of their course of study. This book covers essential policies, guidelines and procedures set out in the code of practice for writing projects in most reputable universities around the world.

"My brother wrote this book based on his own experiences and the experiences of hundreds of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students he counseled, talked to, and interviewed over the course of his 40-year teaching career. The confusion he experienced during college, and the distress and intolerance he witnessed and heard about from students, lead him to realize that some college and university environments are simply not healthy places for LGBT young people to learn and grow and to sort out their own sexuality. This book documents the problems LGBT students might encounter on campus, and provides advice on how LGBT students can select the best-fit college or university for them." -Bill Hinrichs
