'This excellent introductory text should encourage research newcomers to learn more. A practical book offering tools such as a step-by-step guide on how to appraise a paper. Every stage of the research process is discussed in a clear manner. It examines ethical issues, sampling, research problems and data collection techniques...I recommend this reader-friendly book as an essential guide for all practitioners new to the world of research' -
