Review:

Comprehensive is the word.  Flick presents forms of theory in addition to kinds of research design and types of data collection methods.  The message is that ideas and arguments are as important as techniques.  The emphasis on both understanding and how-to-do is refreshing.  The book is a splendid introduction for any and all planning to conduct qualitative research.

(Jaber F. Gubrium 2013-10-17)

Uwe Flick’s book has been one of the best books around for introducing students and early-career researchers to qualitative research. With this fifth edition, the book will be very hard to beat in terms of comprehensiveness, clarity of writing, layout, use of examples, and drawing on personal experience of the qualitative research process. I strongly recommend it to lecturers and students alike as a well-crafted and highly instructive Introduction to Qualitative Research. (Alan Bryman, Professor of Organisational and Social Research 2013-10-17)

The fifth  edition of Uwe Flick′s Introduction to Qualitative Research remains the most comprehensive and thorough text in qualitative research. It is student-and user-friendly, thoroughly up-to-date in terms of the latest developments in the field, imminently practical. it is the single most important introductory book on qualitative inquiry in the social sciences today. (Norman K. Denzin 2013-10-17)

This is a very useful book which I will be recommending to all of our MSc/DBA students around the time of their qualitative methods workshop. It covers the domain of qualitative research comprehensively and is very well written and easy to follow. (Dr. Claire Collins Inspection Copy Feedback)
