Product Description

Review

David Silverman expands and revises his seminal text to include a new chapter on Effective Qualitative Research where he provides five rules to guide the research process. With this book students and novice researchers alike have the resources and necessary tools to produce an effective research study, thesis, or dissertation.

Overall, this new edition is a comprehensive and welcome updating of what was already an essential text. Silverman takes his readers through a substantial and comprehensive introduction to qualitative research and gives them pointers for where to go next. This book will be of great use to students studying research methods, and will give them a thorough and readable introduction to what can sometimes feel like a rather overwhelming subject. As such it deserves its place on reading lists. (Sally Brown 2013-10-22)

'any practitioner who has been away from the classroom and textbooks for some time will find this resource refreshing, engaging and help re-light their passion for qualitative research. Silverman pulls no punches in challenging the reader to be brave, bold, and open in their approach and application.'

(Shane Brownie SRA Research Matters)
