"This book is superb it explains the entire process of writing a literature review very clearly. It covers everything from why literature reviews are important to how to present the review. It is easy to read and very clearly laid out. It is a step by step guide to writing a review which is extremely helpful as the prospect of reviewing literature can be quite daunting. This book has been an extremely useful text whilst studying for my degree and I would have no problems recommending it to anyone ... I would recommend this book to anyone who is about to embark on writing a literature review as it will make the whole process much less daunting.
Vicky Bain, Student Nurse, University of Nottingham, UK
"Many lecturers will be familiar with the concern of students trying to clarify what is meant by a literature review: this book does just that... The book has a logical flow but can also be dipped in and out of, dependent on the style of literature review to be undertaken. It is clearly laid out and easy to follow, and the sections are clearly defined... There is a useful glossary defining common terms. I would recommend this book."
British Journal of Occupational Therapy

Doing a Literature Review is essential reading for all undergraduate students who are writing a literature based dissertation within the health and social care field, or as an introductory text for postgraduate study. It is also a useful text for those who are new to reviewing and appraising literature in the search for answers to questions that arise in practice.
