'Kader Parahoo's text offers a clear and thorough introduction to the many principles and processes involved in research. Nursing Research: Principles, Process and Issues is excellent and has much to offer practitioners from all clinical disciplines. This work clearly reflects how attitudes and approaches to research have changed since the first edition was published. Most, if not all, researchers will agree that they need one good research methodology text on their shelves, and it is increasingly becoming the case that clinicians also need to have a research text available to them in their evidence-based working lives. This revised edition, like its predecesor, meets the needs of both groups - an achievement that is managed by only a few of the great many research texts available. This book is easy to read for novice researchers and students, and yet is also covers the material in sufficient depth to be of value to seasoned researchers and experienced clinicians. I would recommend this book to all involved in health and social care research - and not only to nurses. Leslie Gelling, Times Higher Education Supplement

Like the first one, this edition guides you through the basic ethics and progression in the nursing research process, except that, it keeps you up to date with nursing knowledge and research. It also includes extra appropriate chapters reflecting the evidence-based practice phenomenon.
Currently, I am in the final year of my degree and in the process of an extended literature review. By following the pertinent chapters in this book, I was able to draw together the majority of the theoretical starting point for my study. The relevant guidance and recommended link proved more than accommodating for my learning needs. Doing research without a good book is like `building castles in the air', (Parahoo, 2006)
I would robustly recommend this book for anybody embarking on research in nursing as well as in other health related subjects.
It talks about all different aspects of nursing research, explaining them well and in depth. The book is easy to understand and uses lots of examples to make things clearer.
Definitely worth a read before starting any research assignments, also great for reference. Parahoo is also a well credited author which makes it a good book for referencing.
I am so pleased I bought this. It is also going to be my bible while I do my dissertation!
