"The breezy tone and appropriate use of examples throughout the text make this an unusually accessible and useful text for students. I don't know of another resource that addresses this topic as well for LIS students." -- Chad Morgan "The one main theme that I liked as I read the book is how the author took a real-world approach to research and using evidenced-based sources while incorporating critical thinking skills and reflection." -- Brian Christenson "It is readable and comprehensive and helps students understand the main way researchers and academics write and think about knowledge and research." -- Kevin Borders "The author does a fantastic job of simplifying complex concepts and jargons so the lay person can understand them." -- Osabuohien Amienyi "[The book] provides an accessible introduction to thinking about the place of peer-reviewed research by scaffolding student's learning on to what they already know from personal opinion, newspapers and websites." -- Alex Bowers
