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."

  • This is not a forum; it is a place for people to ask questions,not give the members assignments! – Flyto Jul 1 '18 at 11:31
  • 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 – Flyto Jul 1 '18 at 11:31
  • Please see the changes I have made if they make it more on-topic now. – Sjaffry Jul 2 '18 at 0:25
  • 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. – Allure Jul 3 '18 at 0:57
  • Yes, it kind of a promotional statement that the publisher has asked requested me. – Sjaffry Jul 3 '18 at 4:22

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.
