"The books help to break down the all the complicated jargon and literature and simply highlight all the ‘need to know’ without all the waffle[...]and you can follow the guides over and over again for each future project" 

Danielle, PhD student.

So having this book (and the Little Quick Fix: Research Question) available was super helpful. It really helps you get over that initial "What the heck am I even going to DO?!?!
