All students and professors need to write, and many struggle to finish their stalled dissertations, journal articles, book chapters, or grant proposals. Writing is hard work and can be difficult to wedge into a frenetic academic schedule. In this practical. light-hearted, and encouraging book, Paul Silvia explains that writing productively does not require innate skills or special traits but specific tactics and actions. Drawing examples from his own field of psychology, he shows readers how to overcome motivational roadblocks and become prolific without sacrificing evenings, weekends, and vacations. After describing strategies for writing productively, the author gives detailed adivce from the trenches on how to write, submit, revise, and resubmit articles, how to improve wirting quality, and how to write and publish academic work.

A Tightly Written Behavioralist Approach to Production of Academic Writing  Nov 16, 2008
I confess I have not been as productive a researcher as I should have been since getting tenure. This little gem of a book is changing both my attitude and behavior toward academic writing. There are numerous articles hidden in the dozen or so new data sets I have collected over the past few years. This book has already helped me establish my writing goals and now is the time to produce. Thanks, Dr. Silvia for help and advice. By the way, as of Nov. 2008, he is at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro which is an excellent university.

"How to write a lot" helps a lot  Oct 23, 2008
This book is very easy and pleasant to read. In my opinion, the first 4 chapters are the most original and interesting, giving motivational 'tools' to schedule writing time and stick to it. Regularity in writing is the secret to productive writing, according to Paul Silvia.
This book helped me to change my behavior with writing.
However, I found the 3 chapters about style and about writing articles in journals/books less original; I had already read such information in other books on scientific writing. The conclusion chapter was funny and inspiring, especially the last paragraph entitled "Enjoy Life" that ended with: "it doesn't matter what you do as long as you don't spend your free time writing - there's time during the work week for that".
Not worth the money  Oct 3, 2008
This product has a handful of useful tips but its basic premise can be summed up in a few words: Make a writing schedule, stick to it, and don't make emotional or psychological excuses. That's about all the book has to say, and while the author doesn't claim to do much more, nonetheless it is not worth the money and is not the kind of book you'd want to return to again and again. In addition, its sole target audience seems to be the field of psychology, so its usefulness is even less for people in other fields.
fantastic book  Oct 3, 2008
The book is very readable, to-the-point, and its arguments are well-supported. Silvia takes a behavioral approach to writing, focusing on how to form effective writing habits. His book is focused on the field of psychology, but his methods are certainly applicable to non-fiction writing in other areas as well.
Great little book  Sep 17, 2008
I implemented some of the suggestions in this well-written guide as I was still reading it. And I will keep using them because they WORK. It's worthy of a place on my bookshelf, but I have to admit it's not up there -- because I continue to use it and to show it to everyone I know in the throes of scholarly writing.
