Product Description

Review

'The Literature Review is a clearly written and easily accessible self-guided introduction packed with detailed examples. It's especially useful for budding researchers unfamiliar with crafting literature reviews that support strong theory development and empirical testing. I recommend it to every first-year doctoral student' -
Michael R. Hyman
Distinguished Achievement Professor, New Mexico State University

I think that this book on doing a literature review is helpful for students at all levels. I recommend it to students studying research methods at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and when they are doing a research project or dissertation. I'm particularly pleased that new aspects are being covered in the 2nd ed such as doing a systematic literature review. Doing a literature review can be challenging at every level and this book is a really great resource for students.

It is very useful book for new students, including international students, who will write their research.
In addition, although I selected the free delivery which is 1 week, I received the book in the next day!

Helps you take a step by step approach to your review. Having never done one before and having limited time I wanted to make sure, as far as possible, I did it 'right' first time. There are some good tips in here and whilst I did not heed all of them - it really helped me get started.
