1.0 out of 5 stars Doing your head in: releasing the aggression after trying to read this., 4 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Doing a Literature Review: Releasing the Social Science Research Imagination (Paperback)
I decided to buy this book having read all the fantastic reviews on here, but was sorely disappointed. I am in the process of writing a postgrad literature review for my CIPD and have to say, this book was absolutely no help whatsoever. Maybe it works for academics, but for business students, I would avoid this like the plague. If you're after a book that gives you practical hints on how to get started with your literature review, don't buy this. I found the content and writing style to be largely theoretical and abstract, which made it difficult to follow or glean any quick pointers from. Having trawled through the whole sorry dirge I was left none the wiser by the end of the book and found much more useful and practical tips online.

Amen brother. I wish I had read your review before I got this book.

What a shame that you didn't find it helpful- but the clue is in the title- its for social science rather than business students.
