'(Alan Bryman) is one of the very few research methodologists in the UK who can genuinely span both the quantitative and qualitative methods, and who also has a deep understanding of social science IT. I found Alan's book enormously user-friendly ... insightful and accurate ... logically
organised, and very professionally produced.' Professor Nigel Fielding, Surrey University
