Student Feedback:

Words can't explain how glad I am to have been able to get hold of this book at this particular time, talk of serendipity!

As a first time user of GTM for my dissertation, navigating through the various strands of the method and attempting to make sense of multiple books (articles) on the subject was a daunting task. I now have a more clear understanding of what I need to do to successful finish my dissertation. The title fits the bill, 'A practical guide', it is and more.

The organization of the book is also great. I like the chapter summaries, exercises, web resources, further reading and frequently asked questions sub sections at the end of each chapter. Maybe the book could have its own website so that these sections can be updated with new information on regular basis.

A copy of the book will stay permanently on my desk as I work through coding and writing up my research study for constant reference

This book very helpful - particularly the worked examples shown and the ideas about how to illustrate the data and memos. I referred to it again and again whenever I found myself feeling like I had lost the plot. Cathy Urquhart does have a way of de-mystifying things with simple clear language.

This is an important and very helpful book on grounded theory. It will be useful for both the established qualitative researcher and those who are just beginning their research careers. It is very well written and provides numerous examples of using grounded theory. I highly recommend this book.

At last! A guide to the use of Grounded Theory that is not only accessible for those attempting to apply the methodology for the first time, but also a useful reference for those who teach courses on Grounded Theory and qualitative research methods more generally.
