4.0 out of 5 stars Clear Summary of Newish Research Approach, 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful summary of a comparatively new research approach. Written entirely with the social sciences in mind, it provides some historical background then goes on to set out the method in some detail. Most students would, I think, find the description of steps, strengths and weakness sufficient to decide whether to use this approach in their research project.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Textbook, 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This weighty tome is one of the classics on research methods, with particular reference to business topics. That said, it has useful guidance on many aspects of research that can be appropriate for other areas, particularly the social sciences. Aimed mainly at Masters students, it provides clear advice, sets out a wide range of methods and covers the all important 'ologies' in a very readable manner. There is a very good support website which is aimed mainly at lecturers. Overall, the combination of underlying theory, discussion topics and specific advice for students is a powerful combination. Strongly recommended.

The Management of Projects
The Management of Projects
by Peter W. G. Morris
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Seminal Book on PM history, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the seminal books on project management. This paperback version is slightly updated from the original and is excellent general reading. I needed it as part of my reading for a Masters degree and have found it invaluable. It has led me on to other useful works that have proved extremely useful as well as being interesting in a general education on PM.

I think this book is a good read and excellent preparation for Prof Morris' "Restructuring Project Management" .


The Future of Project Management (Project Management Institute Research)
The Future of Project Management (Project Management Institute Research)
by Project Management Institute
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but dated view of PM, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fairly dated work but I needed one of the papers for a research degree so it turned out to be a useful addition to my personal library. The format is a little odd to a European and almost all the authors are USA based so the perspective is firmly transatlantic. Despite that, the material is very interesting and the appendix is almost required reading if you are studying hte development of project management.


Landscape Photography Workshop, The
Landscape Photography Workshop, The
by Ross Hoddinott & Mark Bauer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars I was not disappointed. The technical coverage and detailed explanations are excellent, 20 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have another book in the same series as this so my expectations for this one were high. I was not disappointed. The technical coverage and detailed explanations are excellent, striking a good balance between the level of technological detail and what is needed to underpin the artistry aspects.

While suitable for all levels of photographic experience. It has helped me understand why some things in photography work and others give suboptimal results. It is particularly useful in helping to work out a workflow approach to managing my photographs.

Overall an excellent and value for money book.


Professions and Power (Study in Sociology)
Professions and Power (Study in Sociology)
by Terence James Johnson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but essential sociology of professions, 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is no longer in print, as far as I can discover, but it is one of the more significant works on the sociology of professions. It is quite short but summarises the main arguments concerning professionalism and includes a short bibliography of key books on the topic. It handles the case of social closure well. The book is useful to academics and students who are likely to appreciate the succinct nature of Johnson's work, the brief but effective referencing and the very useful notes on the bibliography of professions.
