Review:
"What sets this book apart is its skillful integration of both the scientific and artistic dimensions of qualitative research."
--From the foreword by Michael Quinn Patton, author of Qualitative Research and Evaluation Methods, 3rd Edition

"This is one of the best books I've found for introductory or intermediate qualitative research courses. I have taught this course using this text and the students really raved about it. In particular, the way the text handles issues of data collection, the role of qualitative research, and data analysis are extremely well done. I highly recommend this text as one of the most accessible yet sophisticated books on qualitative research that I've been able to use in my courses. This is an excellent resource that all new qualitative researchers should have on their bookshelf."
--Alison A. Carr-Chellman, Instructional Systems, Penn State University

"This is a clearly written and straightforward introduction to qualitative research. The central themes of the book--that qualitative research is learning and qualitative researchers are learners--move the text beyond the 'how to do it' in ways that can be helpful for 'seasoned' qualitative researchers as well as beginners. Thinking about qualitative research as a process of learning--about social phenomena, about participants, about oneself--is a very powerful pedagogical and methodological approach."
--Elizabeth J. Whitt, College of Education, University of Iowa
