This is the best book I've ever read on research methods and methodology. It explains in plain English terms that are used in other text books and journal articles without explanations. It is a fantastic textbook for anyone involved in qualitative research and wanting to understand theoretical underpinnings of research better. It is also well written, not your standard a dry text book on research methods. It's a book that challenges you to think about the choices you make along the research process whilst keeping.

If you are only going to buy one book on qualitative research methods this would be my recommendations. However if you are looking for step by step guide for doing qualitative research don't buy this book. This book gives you a framework to work with but requires you to think about the process of research and why you are doing what you are doing. It is the one book that kept me sane whilst doing my PhD...

First chapter demystifies & translates educational and social research 'gobbledegook' and jargon into plain English. Very clearly and concisely written. THe following chapters look at various paradigms and concepts in a lucid and concise way. Great size book to carry about with you. One note of caution - be aware that definitions can blur from one University to another .. and that is when the fog of confusion could descend. Absolute must for anyone studying research methods / educational research at post graduate level.

This book gives readers a fundamental understanding of philosophies and methods that make up what is called methodology. It is written in a simple way which makes it easily readable.

This book is a highly beneficial tool that helps students to structure their research in the best way possible. It is not a recipe or "how to" book. Rather, it takes the reader through an organized and relevant process of understanding.

Brilliant book for those starting out on the road of research. It is an easy to understand book about topics which can often be seen as very complicated. Worth a read by all budding researchers.
