Review:

'This book is a very user friendly presentation of how to do qualitative narrative research with a focus on language teaching and research. The authors intend the book to be a how-to manual. The entire book, and each individual chapter, is well laid out. Very useful examples and illustrations are given throughout, and there is a boxed summary at the end of each chapter with a bulleted list of the topics covered.' - Susan Joffe, Bar-Ilan University, The LINGUIST List

'...I wish to emphasize that this research manual is a compelling and thoughtful journey through the field of narrative inquiry applied to language teaching and learning research as it is understood today. The examples engage the reader and offer plenty of practical ideas as to how to actually carry out narrative inquiry...The final discussion opens interesting questions to both novice and experienced researchers working in the field, as well as to teacher educators and researchers in ELT who will find in narratives a new resource to inquire into teaching and learning processes from a bottom-up and reflexive perspective.' - Adriana Patiño-Santos, University of Southampton, UK
