Format: Paperback
This is the best, and most comprehensive guide to social science research methods currently available. It is extremely clear with plenty of examples and a user-friendly layout. It is very up-to-date and well written. The author is an established expert on methodology who has made important original contributions to the development of research methods. For most purposes, the only book you need on social research.

I've almost read all the research texts so far, and this is the best book in the feild of social/business research, especially for postgraduate students.

This is an absolute must have for anyone studying or working in the field of sociology and/or social/policy research! It is the most comprehensive text on research methods I own (and I own a few!). It covers every level of learner from Undergraduate right up to PhD (although for PhD see also Silverman on qualitative methods).

As it is soley writen by Bryman, as opposed to edited publications, the drawback is that it only offers his insight. I use the edited Gilbert's 'Researching Social Life' as a companion to this just to add secondary assurance to my methods.

I bought the book to study for a social methods assessment day and although very long (700 plus pages) it really helped me to revise and to learn about new concepts and methods. I have only used a small number of research methods textbooks but I woud highly recommend this one especially for what you get as well as the case studies which are used throughout to illustrate concepts and research methods.

It was recommended reading, so I decided to buy it jointly with my boyfriend. It has been so useful, and thats without even using all the online resources it comes with! It's laid out very clearly, and has sections for both qualitative and quantitative research. Don't start a dissertation without one!

This will be a very heavy read for students not familiar with social research methods. I have found it quite difficult to get to grips with the terminologies in the book which on the face of it might seem obvious ie interpretivism but on the other hand means something totally different. The reader will have to be truly dedicated and enthusiastic about the subject to get through each chapter. Still it is a well written book on a specialist subject matter

This masterpiece by Alan Bryman is a must read for researchers in the social science domain. I needed a proper guide to understanding research parameters in the Social Sciences and this book has provided me a very easy-to-understand read.
