'This is a book that even the most confirmed qualitative researcher can highly recommend to students. And for any course in quantitative methods it would be my first choice. The clear and interesting communicative style draws in the reader both to an understanding of some of the basis building blocks of quantitative research but also to some of answers to critiques of certain ways of using statistics. Those wanting just to be able to understand quantitative research as well as the statistically unsure wanting to use it are unlikely to be disappointed. There is a growing need for Daniel Muijs's text also in order to respond to the burgeoning in interest in mixed methodology' - Professor Liz Todd, Newcastle University
