Product Description

Review

Full of useful and informative chapters that take the students through the key stages within qualitative research. (Professor Margaret Hogg 2013-12-04)

I think this is an excellent book - whenever students ask for advice on DOING qualitative research (rather than writing essays on it), I reach for this. (Dr Ben Baumberg 2013-12-04)

An excellent primer for anyone who is new to qualitative research, and also a very useful reference book for people with more experience. (Helen Kara SRA Research Matters)

Used as a reference for some thematic analysis as part of an MSc dissertation. Found it a good "dip in as required" reference. The example is very good of using a form of framework analysis which suited to my particular study area.

Only gripe is that I purchased as an ebook which had no page number - makes referencing a nightmare. Would have given 5 stars otherwise.

This book will be useful to new and experienced qualitative researchers including those trying a new methodology within the qualitative field. It manages to draw together really practical guidance whilst highlighting the theoretical underpinning and pitfalls worth avoiding. Also written in a very readable style. I would strongly recommend this book.

excellent book for the novice and for the seasoned researcher, will certainly be recommending it. I'm completely new to qualitative research and it has helped me grasp the ideas behind it and more importantly helped me to apply those ideas
