If you are a management or business studies undergraduate or postgraduate, doing either a research methods course or a research dissertation, then this is the book for you - a fantastic resource that covers everything you need in a concise, coherent and clear way. Keith Grint, Professor of Public Leadership & Management Institute of Governance & Public Management (IGPM), Warwick Business School, University of Warwick An ideal text for postgraduate and senior undergraduate research courses offered in business schools throughout the world. It is highly readable yet eminently authoritative, refreshingly practical yet academically sound, remarkably comprehensive yet by no means overwhelming. I found this to be a very useful teaching resource as well as reference source and strongly commend it to novice and veteran researchers alike.
