Review:

'This second edition of Valsa Koshy's book is highly readable and of genuine relevance to teachers and student teachers undertaking action research. There are many texts on action research, but this one appeals because of its clarity and sense of purpose...The book is valuable as a textbook for teachers either engaged in enquiry-based postgraduate study, or as a practical guide to those beginning to explore the potential of action research for developing practice' -
Learning and Teaching Update

'The book is an extremely useful guide to setting-up and carrying out action research [offering] the reader a number of case studies drawn from both UK and international contexts, theoretical views and practical advice for the new researcher...the addition in this second edition of a dedicated chapter on 'how to write for publication' adds great value for the practitioner reader and student alike...Essential reading if you are interested in this field of practitioner research' -
Management in Education

'This book is an exceptionably clear and lucid guide to Action Research. Aimed at practitioners and educational students, from both school and post compulsory sectors, it provides straightforward guidance about what Action Research is and how to carry it out. Clearly written and using many examples and case studies from the author's own teaching it is hard not to be motivated by this book and the possibilities it contains for Action Research in education' -
Yvon Appelby, Senior Lecturer,
University of Central Lancashire
