5.0 out of 5 stars An essential handbook for the case study researcher, 10 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Yin points out that the case study is too often seen as a "soft option". In fact it requires a broad range of skills which must be used within a structured approach.
This book takes the reader through the key stages of: deciding if the case study approach is appropriate for your research, how to design a case study, how to collect and analyse evidence, and how to compose a Case Study Report.
Written in a clear style with plenty of examples and exercises, this book guides you through the processes involved. Yin provides a rigorous approach which should help the reader counter criticisms of the case study as a methodology which is often seen as inferior to more "scientific" approaches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Methodology combined with Practicality, 14 Jan 2002
By 
geoff.walker@newcastle.gov.uk (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) - See all my reviews
Yin provides an essential baseline for the active researcher using the case study method.
If you are involved in researching live projects then this work is invalauble. Yin's background in case studies of political, social and economic projects of the 1980s still proves useful in the 21st century.
It is not often that one comes across methodological works that are so accessible, informative and directive.
This work can also act as a practical fieldwork guide as it methodiccally takes you through each step of the process.
Well written with many poignant examples, it is a book I go back to, again and again, thinking...
"Mmmm...I wonder what Yin said about that!".
