This book is necessary for all who want to do ethnographical studies of organizations. It helps to develop research methodology, but it also helps to develop a good way of "writing it all up." You don't have to know a lot about organization theory to read this book and to find it useful - it works excellent for beginners, too. Maybe not for absolute beginners, though - you have to know that you are interested in organizations and that you would like to do explore them. A perfect books for research seminars! But also a good read - you can depend on Barbara Czarniawska to write well and offer you real reading pleasure, even in a methodology book like this one.
