A great book for students that covers all the essential steps and methodological approaches for successfully conducting a research project. The material is highly accessible, contemporary and addresses the major challenges, concerns and questions that students face when undertaking research. -- Christopher Walker
Zina O'Leary's guide is hands-down favourite with the research students. She answers questions you don't feel able to ask your supervisor, they say. Myself, I like the solid academic and experiential grounding of her content, her enthusiasm and accessible style. -- Rebecca O'Rourke
