5.0 out of 5 stars Academically robust and highly readable, 4 April 2008
This review is from: Real World Research: A Resource for Social Scientists and Practitioner-researchers (Paperback)
Many titles which aim to teach students and practitioners the art of research fall into one of two camps. At one extreme their approach is that of the 'how to... cookbook' where the reader develops the practical skills but their understanding of the underpinning principles isn't developed. At the other extreme is the highly technical (and often inpenatrable) text which provides the depth and theoretical rigour but which many students and practitioners find hard going and inaccessable, particularly for those relativly new to research.

The real value of Colin Robson's book is that it bridges that divide.
Its written in a style which is accessable and it provides a very readable account of the practice and of the principles that underpin academic research. At the same time its contents are academically robust and it takes the reader far beyond simple pragmatics and into the development of a deeper understanding of the research process in social science settings.

Its a book that both novice and experienced researchers will find usefull and will retun to time and time again for the valuable insight that it provides.

Highly recommended!
