Academic research calls for high quality skills in knowledge management which includes in depth analytical study of a particular area within a discipline, verification of that knowledge, organisation of relevant materials, usually within a specific time and presentation. The second edition is a valuable collection to any and every researcher who wants to make his work intellectually and professionally viable. At the very onset of the book Professor Cryer mentions well ’who the book is for’ as well as ‘what the book does and does not do.’ Going by these sub sections readers can comprehend whether or to what extent the book is to fulfil their need.
