Life stories have been accepted as important sources of information in a variety of academic circles. Robert Atkinson offers practical guidance on life story research, carefully covering the whole procedure from the planning to the interpretive stage. He suggests an open, flexible, non-judgemental method which prioritises the voices of the narrators and the reality of their worlds.
Ideally the approach guides and encouragess narrators to look reflectively over their lives searching for its deeper meanings and for a fuller understanding of its course over the passage of time. The researcher should treat narrators and their stories with respect allowing the interview to become an active and collaborative process.
This book carries a wealth of information for students of life story research. The information may also assist readers of life stories to gain a fuller and more critical appreciation of this form of literature.

I will surely recommend this small but comprehensive guide to the Life story interview to my students and I use it when conducting my Phd research. Short but sweet and highly recommendable.
