I am transforming my Mater thesis into a book. I need to write a 100 word summary for the same as well. Should I be mentioning in my book that it is an extension of my Master's thesis? The following is the relevant excerpt from my book summary.

"This book, which originates from author’s master’s thesis, discusses laser-based ultrasonic NDT method."

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it isn't a question - it's an attempt to give an assignment to members

  • Please see the changes I have made if they make it more on-topic now.

  • What do you need the summary for? If it's the publisher asking for a summary there's a good chance the summary 1) becomes the blurb at the back of the book and 2) ends up on all the marketing flyers they make.

  • Yes, it kind of a promotional statement that the publisher has asked requested me.

Personally I would not refer to your master thesis in your abstract. Often books are recommended based on an author’s life long in depth experience in a field. In your case I would look for recommendations of professors and put those on the cover of your book.
