5.0 out of 5 stars A good hand book for researchers using qualitative methods, 4 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book invaluable in my post graduate studies and research work. Jennifer Mason addresses both practical elements of qualitative research and more importantly the epistemological and theoretical approach which is so often neglected in this type of book. There are good examples throughout and main points are emphasised in boxes in every chapter.
Beginning with a introductory chapter about what qualitative research is and should be, subsequent chapters deal with the research process in an intuitive order, from 'planning and designing qualitative research', to 'producing analysis and explanations which are convincing'.
It is not a long book but it is thorough, well written, and I would recommend it.

This review is from: Qualitative Researching (Paperback)
The second edition of Qualitative researching is a real intriguing book.Very far from the cooking handbook, the book helps to put in shape the most relevant problems in qualitative research. I really appreciate the chapter on sampling and selection where the author presents the main sampling strategies for qualitative research, focusing on the strategic version of theoretical sample, that express the best way to face the problem of generalitation in qualitative research.Qualitative Researching

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Qualitative Researching (Paperback)
This is very readable for early qualitative researchers with good advice about design, collection, analysis and interpretation of data without the heavy methodology found in some books. I wish I had read this book as I started my research it would have helped me clarify my ideas and approaches..The references offer good pointers for further information.
