Peggy Hawley knows," could be the simple interpretation of this advice guide for those in pursuit of the terminal degree. I expect that, like me, many doctoral learners will approach this book with some hubris. It is not a monolithic task. A finely tuned understanding of the different elements-topic selection, chair, committee and you, writing the proposal, your dissertation and its defense, et. will lend insights that should help any student to optimize time and effort, and maximize results. For me the lessons are doubly prescient as I attempt to stop my slide from E. to ABD.

The details and reactions in light of experiences of the intervening years have been updated and expanded. This particularly interesting book is written from a student advocacy perspective, intended to speak to non-traditional students as well as those typical of past generations. On a year-long sabbatical leave I interviewed hundreds of doctoral students and dozens of professors across the nation. Then as professor emeritus, I finally found the time to put my thoughts into words.

Being Bright Is Not Enough: The Unwritten Rules of Doctoral Study by Peggy Hawley. Springfield, Il. Charles C Thomas, Publisher, 1993. Be forewarned and forearmed! Taking on a program of doctoral study can be a heady venture, striking at not only the mind, but the heart and the will. Many take the plunge. Too few, however, follow through with finesse and culminate the routine, having converted promise into fulfillment. So writes Professor Emeritus Hawley in what she heralds as a literary mentor for doctoral students in divergent disciplines. Indeed, this book's subject matter is grist for graduate faculty attention as well.

Great book! Helped me figure out a lots of insider info in my first semester of my PhD program. This was suggested to me by my advisor, it was required reading for his PhD program. I think it should be required reading for anyone in or thinking about starting a PhD program.

"Peggy Hawley knows," could be the simple interpretation of this advice guide for those in pursuit of the terminal degree.

I expect that, like me, many doctoral learners will approach this book with some hubris. After all, we got this far without Peggy looking over our shoulders and coaxing us on right? Motivation isn't something we lack; knowledge is something we have a lot of and thrive on acquiring. Therein lies the immense appeal of this book: the foreknowledge of things that may go badly.

That is never on our radar in a meaningful way--and a good thing too, otherwise we'd be a world of pessimists. However, it pays to know the pitfalls that have befallen many like you and me, who have been no less capable or motivated. The best laid plans of mice and wo/men are won't to go astray. If you're keen on knowledge then you should have the fundamental curiosity to know why?

The Dropout Phenomenon is a sobering look at the variety of challenges that reduce the completion rates of an already small pool (in relative terms). Beyond that Peggy provides an informed guide on how to proceed through the several stages toward earning your degree. It is not a monolithic task. A finely tuned understanding of the different elements--topic selection, chair, committee and you, writing the proposal, your dissertation and its defense, etc.--will lend insights that should help any student to optimize time and effort, and maximize results.

For me the lessons are doubly prescient as I attempt to stop my slide from Ed.D to ABD. The gremlins are lurking nearby.

Timeless Principles, Life-Changing Lessons!!!

A gift for a new doctoral student, this is a decent "reality check" for doctoral study. (Been there, done that.). Later chapters are less insightful and more repetitive of other books.
Keth
Generally informative, but dated. Most of what's here can be gleaned by any student who builds relationships with peers, faculty mentors, and program administrators. However, if you like self-help books, this one can't hurt.

Awesome!

This book should be on every university library shelf, just for starters. Written by a psychologist, who was also founder and former director of a joint two university doctoral program in Education, it is written in a warm, easy style and yet spells out in clear detail the unwritten rules of doctoral study. She states that her experience with hundreds of doctoral students as well as professors provided the inspiration for this valuable guide which is designed to help pave the way for doctoral students in any discipline. She makes explicit, in a knowing and straightforward way, the kinds of information that can make the difference in the feelings of confidence with which students can make their way through their doctoral experience. It deals with many of the 'nuts and bolts' of graduate study that many books present. However, it is her insightful knowledge about the role of personal relationships and how they effect student progression that puts the book in a special class.
This book includes more than technical assistance. It describes pursuit of a doctorate in the social sciences as an emotional journey. Most students fail, not for lack of intellectual ability, but for psychological reasons. This book describes relationships that help or hurt the student's quest. It is invaluable.
