About the Author:

Dr Catherine Dawson has worked as a researcher since the mid-1980s and has taught on research methods courses at university. She has also written extensively for academic journals on a wide range of subjects including research methodology. In this book she explains complicated issues in a way that can be understood by anyone who is interested in their topic.

Review:

'Many research books are written in a highly academic style which can put off the fledgling researcher, but this one is easy to read. It outlines the research process clearly and I would recommend anyone who is thinking of undertaking a research project to read this first. They will find that they are looking forward to their research and much more confident of the process.' Reader review 'All students should read this. I've completed the research for my dissertation and it was much easier than I thought, thanks to this book.' Reader Review --Reader reviews
