"I used the first edition of this book in my graduate qualitative methods class, and I look forward to using the second edition this fall. The changes are excellent. The text is even more readable and comprehensive, it has been up-dated, and includes all the topics pertinent to understanding and doing Communication qualitative research. The new edition contains exercises and many examples and exemplars, a well as new chapters on computer mediated qualitative research and on authoring and writing." (Carolyn Ellis 2010-05-13)

"The first edition of Qualitative Communication Research Methods set a high standard for accessibility, thoroughness, and depth. The second edition takes that standard even higher. Lindlof and Taylor have written a complete text that addresses the theory and technique of qualitative research across a breadth of approaches with substantive and illuminating examples drawn from a variety of topical areas. The writing is exemplary―engaging, careful and dead on. The authors address the problems and controversies of research without bogging down in indecision or glossing to happy endings. The pedagogy is solid. This is a book for the practitioner and the student. It is a "go to" text."
