Reviews

Full of useful and informative chapters that take the students through the key stages within qualitative research. -- Professor Margaret Hogg
I think this is an excellent book - whenever students ask for advice on DOING qualitative research (rather than writing essays on it), I reach for this. -- Dr Ben Baumberg
An excellent primer for anyone who is new to qualitative research, and also a very useful reference book for people with more experience. -- Helen Kara * SRA Research Matters *
