    Description

    By the time Umberto Eco published his best-selling novel The Name of the Rose, he was one of Italy's most celebrated intellectuals, a distinguished academic and the author of influential works on semiotics. Some years before that, in 1977, Eco published a little book for his students, How to Write a Thesis, in which he offered useful advice on all the steps involved in researching and writing a thesis - from choosing a topic to organizing a work schedule to writing the final draft. Now in its 23rd edition in Italy and translated into 17 languages, How to Write a Thesis has become a classic. Remarkably, this is its first, long overdue publication in English.

    Eco's approach is anything but dry and academic. He not only offers practical advice, but also considers larger questions about the value of the thesis-writing exercise. How to Write a Thesis is unlike any other writing manual. It sounds like a novel. It is opinionated. It is frequently irreverent, sometimes polemical, and often hilarious. Eco advises students how to avoid "thesis neurosis", and he answers the important question "Must You Read Books?" He reminds students "You are not Proust" and "Write everything that comes into your head, but only in the first draft". Of course, there was no Internet in 1977, but Eco's index card research system offers important lessons about critical thinking and information curating for students of today who may be burdened by Big Data.

    Practical and funny

    “How to write a thesis” is filled with practical advice. The pacing of the book is easy to follow and the content is easy to grasp. I definitely recommend it. The physical book is useful for referring to the many examples so I ended up buying that as well though this audio version does come with a PDF of those images.

    Not applicable

    Very old tricks
    Didn't cover the big picture
    Rather bragged about Italian history knowledge
    Maybe good for humanities topics. Much info not applicable to 21st century

    Evt. als Inspiration für Neueinsteiger_innen nett

    Die Methoden sind veraltet, aber auch die Zitiertechniken sind natürlich kaum übertragbar. Dadurch finde ich es absolut überteuert. Ich würde es gern zurück geben, muss aber erstmal rausfinden wie. und dann gehe ich lieber zur guten öffentlichenBib und höre für den selben Preis ein Jahr lang alles mögliche.
