''Oh, no! A research paper?!'' This book will help you get past the fear and revulsion and encourage you to produce something about which both you and your mother will be proud! Not making certain mistakes is important, but more vital is doing your best research, writing your most persuasive pages, and coming out with something that just might get published (beyond your mother's Facebook page). I've written my share of bad papers, and graded both bad and good ones, ranging from ''This is just awful!'' to ''Let's get this puppy published!'' This book will help you move toward the latter category. Really.
