I found this great review of Scrivener by Daniel Wessel. In this long review, he provides detailed information on Scrivener as a tool for thesis or dissertation writing. If you are looking for thesis writing software, read this post carefully. I think you will get much valuable information.
Wessel’s blog titled “organizing creativity” is full of interesting posts and also a free pdf book on how to organize creativity. For writers of any genre, the website will offer something to learn. I highly recommend the site.
