Reviews

Of the many books about qualitative research, this one is particularly engaging to read. It will be useful to the novice as an introductory text and to experienced researcher as a refresher. The book's structure allows the reader to compare the characteristics of each method and examples of how each could be employed.
-- Lucy Land
Here is something really worthwhile but rarely seen: a useful book on qualitative research methods. -- Professor Ruth Rentschler OAM
This book offers a welcome focus on the theoretical underpinnings of the major qualitative methods allowing students to thoroughly engage with the rationality behind the approach to analysis. Each chapter is full of useful examples of research and the extensive references give students plenty of guidance on what to read next. This is a very useful text for developing research awareness and critical thinking skills, not just because it offers students to reflect explicitly on a critical response to the content, but because of its explanatory writing style. -- Dr. Joanna Ferrie, Lecturer in Social Research Methods

I recommend Qualitative Methodology: A Practical Guide as an invaluable resource for students, instructors, thesis supervisors, and researchers in social sciences and applied fields such as education.
