I have started a PhD using a Grounded Theory informed Methodology. I hesitate to use the term fully Grounded as realistically, I will not be able to reach the saturation point for categories and themes within the timescale of the PhD.

I have explored the various takes on Grounded Theory in the past few months. From purist Glaser, to Strauss and Corbin, and Charmaz's expansive and experienced insights into using Grounded Theory.

I think I found this book at the right stage in my journey with Grounded Theory. To understand it's true nature, you do have to get to grips with the genesis and historical context of Grounded Theory; it's iterations and nuances.

Once you start asking the "How" questions it's time to move onto Cathy Urquhart's book. This book guides researchers in the pragmattic aspects of applying Grounded Theory. Each phase of designing your study will involve decisions, and this book provides you with the context for making these decisions.

Along with Saldana's Coding Manual I suggest that this is an essential text for those about to embark upon a Grounded Theory led project.

Great practical guide to GT. Cathy does a fine job conversing with the reader, putting across her arguments for GT, while leaving enough room for the reader to draw their own conclusions. Good job Cathy.
