Now retired from full-time work, David aims to watch one hundred days of cricket a year. He also enjoys voluntary work in an old people's home where he sings with residents with dementia and strokes.
Qualitative Research provides some real insight into qualitative practices―the “whys” and the “what,” enabling one to become a more sensitive and thoughtful research practitioner...what Silverman and the contributors to this third edition have done is to provide readers―the graduate students, researchers, teachers and perhaps those involved in funding qualitative research―with ideas that develop and enrich our sensibilities about the nature and practice of qualitative research
The Weekly Qualitative Report
Silverman's latest edition of this well regarded text aims to elucidate current developments in qualitative research. In my opinion, it is well positioned to achieve its stated purpose, as it presents a collection of key readings on a range of contemporary interests in qualitative research... This edition has been refreshed and reinvigorated, ensuring that it maintains pace with the contemporary world of qualitative research and the concerns and developments encountered in this world. This is a particular strength of the book... It is particularly suited to the qualitative research neophyte who wishes to quickly grasp the key features of the subject areas addressed. Academic staff should therefore consider this text an important adjunct to modules relating to the design and conduct of qualitative reseach in contemporary research settings.
