Summary Mastering these skills spells the difference between 'A.B.D.' and 'Ph.D': refuting the magnum opus myth; coping with the dissertation as obsession (magnificent or otherwise); the fine art of selecting a topic; writing the dissertation with publication in mind; when to stand your ground and when to prudently retreat if the committee's conception of your thesis differs substantially from your own; dealing with obstructive committee members, and keeping the fences mended; how to reconsider 'negative' findings as useful data; reviewing your progress, and getting out of the 'dissertation dumps'; defending your paper successfully - distinguishing between mere formalities and a serious substantive challenge; exploiting the career potential of your dissertation; and much, much more.
