Bachelor's dissertation for sale on Amazon.com. Publisher contacted student through Facebook.
'At first I thought it was a joke', says Niels. But his dissertation containing recommendations for the network of public standpipes in Mozambique is now for sale on Amazon.com for 101 dollars. In paperback, note. 'A ridiculous amount, of course no-one's going to buy it', says the author. 'But it's still nice to see it on Internet.'
Niels himself got a free copy.
He is hoping to get his Master's in International Land and Water Management at Wageningen University this year. Will he be publishing his Master's dissertation too? 'No idea, I haven't thought about that yet.'
