So in my continuing quest to better understand the literature review process, I’ve been reading Critical Reading and Writing for Postgraduates by Wallace and Wray (2006).
I’m not going to do a review, but suffice to say it’s a good book. It’s actually pretty complex, and delivers more than the title might promise. I’m still working through it, but I can really recommend it. It also comes with some good free access handouts – have a look at the publisher’s webpage.
In particular, have a look at the Critical Analysis template and the Critical Synopsis template. They’re word docs with ideas to think over when you’re reading, and the analysis template is very in depth.
