"What Bell has produced constitutes a useful work for all first-time researchers. It could be used with pre-service teacher education students to assist them in their research projects. Tutors couldalso find it helpful as a text for generating questions on the natureof educational research and the problems which is raises...Each chapterends with a useful list of suggested further readings for those students who want to pursue topics in greater depth." - Education Research & Perspectives "Nicely done Judith Bell- no wonder the book is in its 10th printing." - Social Work Review
