"...an excellent resource and reference tool for anybody undertaking social research. It provides practical advice on how to choose the most appropriate method for the research being undertaken and offers valuable advice and direction in negotiating various issues...It is written in an accessible format...to encourage the reader to consider the research process from a practical and personal viewpoint...This second edition of the book includes new and up-to-date material and touches on areas often neglected in mainstream research books. These include techniques such as action research; and key issues such as time management and choosing a research supervisor. The book addresses the 'writing-up' process in some detail and covers a number of fundamental issues often ignored by more experienced researchers, such as grammar, referencing, spelling and use of tables and graphs...Not only is it an excellent starting point for new researchers and students, but undoubtedly the more experienced researcher will also find it valuable. Furthermore, those involved in teaching research methods or supervising research students would find this is a useful source of information, exercises and ideas." - Social Research News Social Research News 20031030 "This novel approach gives an accurate picture of what it's like to conduct research, and has useful top tips from people who often learned the herd way." - Richard Wiseman New Scientist 20021012 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

it does a very good job in teaching the approach of choosing the dissertation topic and so on
however, it does not cover very much in study designs, which makes this reading not sufficient for people who are going to conduction a primary quantitative research (I didn't reading about the lit review and qualitative part)
I extremely recommended.
