Format: Paperback
This book is necessary for all who want to do ethnographical studies of organizations. It helps to develop research methodology, but it also helps to develop a good way of "writing it all up." You don't have to know a lot about organization theory to read this book and to find it useful - it works excellent for beginners, too. Maybe not for absolute beginners, though - you have to know that you are interested in organizations and that you would like to do explore them. A perfect books for research seminars! But also a good read - you can depend on Barbara Czarniawska to write well and offer you real reading pleasure, even in a methodology book like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Approach to Research, Finally 21 Feb. 2008
By A. Coons - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have taken Research Methods over and over again as an undergraduate and graduate student. I've read all of the "classics", but when I wanted to take a unique approach to my thesis research, I didn't think I could find something so suitable and unique. This author eloquently describes the pitfalls of over-referencing (too many citations cause the author to write nothing new and nothing of value). This approach to research is not focused on error-proofing research results. In fact, the focus in on telling a story. The author encourages readers to tell the whole story and to include the self, making the research admittedly subjective. For the first time I felt like I was able to use a very legitimate research method where I didn't have to spend most of my time anticipating potential weaknesses - instead I just got down to business in a way that felt relevant. Finally!
