From reviews of the text:

 

“The primary strengths … are the authors’ capacity to provide a succinct overview to research in its broadest sense, while offering enough depth to both engage the reader and provoke an interest in further study. For this reason, Practical Research: Planning and Design represents a seminal introduction to the subject of research and remains a helpful reference tool along the way for novice and experienced researchers alike.”

– Robert Hayden, Michigan State University

 

“[Practical Research] is written in a very user-friendly style for novice researchers. It gives a good overview of research methodology in a very concise manner. I like the extended examples.”

– Brian Belland, Utah State University
