I really, really dislike reading this kind of theory, as it tends to be unanchored to any specific situations or people? I mean, really, what's the point of that?

Ugh, revisions do suck. But comments are good if they're at least constructive. I gave my thesis proposal to my advisor and he gave back the entire 30 page document with three pages marked.

Good luck with the work!
