I teach literature reviewing to students and bought this book to see whether it was worth recommending to undergraduate students. Postgrads might prefer something with a little more detail / complexity. I think it's a very readable, concise, and accessible introduction to undertaking a literature review in the field of healthcare and will be perfect reading for undergrads who are about to undertake their first literature review.
Excellent, clear guide with relevant examples. The chapters take you through the process stage by stage and offer useful checklists at the end of each chapter. It is more focused towards searches via the internet and university libraries online than other literature review books I have read, which has been very useful.
This was recommended to me by my supervisor at university. I decided to buy it as I thought it would be easier than checking it out of the library! It has already helped me greatly with writing my project proposal, and will undoubtedly help me with writing my dissertation next year! Well laid out and in easy-to-read sections- would definitely recommend to others.
This book was a recommend text for my BSc (Hons) degree, and helped me get a First for it with a mark of 85%.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. Only slight criticism is I found is, the how to write the discussion section a little week. It breaks the discussion down into seperate sections which is great, but it could do with a little more help in the later parts on what to write in it.
Recommend this book for anyone studying and doing academic work. It is an easy read and very easy to understand. It has helped me write my dissertation and I am continuing to work my way through it. It will be a good book for to refer back to even when I have finished studying. Good for people who are new to doing literature reviews.
