“Taken as a whole, these 36 chapters are extremely useful as a resource for all students and researchers interested in CA. They offer an excellent inventory of what CA has achieved in the 45 years of its existence. In that sense the Handbookis a clear landmark for CA as a field, reconsidering the past as well as looking into the future.” (Discourse Studies, 1 June 2014)
“Finally, the state of the art in Conversation Analysis is presented in a concise handbook. Over five decades, CA has been used to study talk–in–interaction, profoundly influencing research disciplines concerned with human interaction. A comprehensive account of CA in this detail and quality has never been published before. The community is indebted to Jack Sidnell and Tanya Stivers."
‒Johannes Wagner, University of Southern Denmark
“A must–read for every student of human interaction. It captures the outstanding interdisciplinary reach of CA and offers fresh perspectives on foundational issues: its voices are authoritative and inspirational." ‒Rebecca Clift, University of Essex
"An authoritative, wide–ranging overview of conversation analysis, an ideal tool for advanced students finding their way in doing CA, but useful for all CA practitioners."
‒Paul ten Have, author of “Doing Conversation Analysis: A Practical Guide”

So, not great for cramming for an exam. But great for writing up a PhD.
If any of you consider yourself possessed of good sense and logic, avoid this book, avoid his other book, avoid this topic. CA considers itself similar to the natural sciences, but they have no real concept of the word 'proof' and use it in the loosest possible manner. To anyone who is even remotely versed in the real sciences, this topic is a complete and utter joke. Actually, Linguistics as a whole is a bit of a joke, and if you are embarking on a degree in it, I'd suggest you change it to something more useful. Poetry, perhaps.
