It covers the basics of social sciences and behavioral research methods very well, while incorporating examples of social work research. In addition, the author introduces research methods (e.g., participant action research) that have particular relevance to social work practice that are often ignored in other texts.

This book succeeds in 'demystifying' what is meant by analysis of data.
