“This book uses everyday language that will captivate students’ attention and embed practical knowledge to supplement the technical.”
“The key strengths of the text are the passion and the enthusiasm that Dr. Maxwell has for qualitative research after all these years. I feel I can also utilize these concepts on my own research team and take them out of the classroom and into research team meetings with colleagues.”

I am currently starting to conduct research for my doctoral dissertation and although qualitative research is about 25% of my design, I have found this book extremely helpful. At first the title threw me a bit because my design is not purely qual., but I was pleasantly surprised when I began to recognize that the foundations of any design are in deed very similar, the book turned into a how-to manual about the process of doing research! Highly recommended for anyone wanting to have an easy, clear, and pragmatic approach to how to conduct the research process. -M-Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book helps the reader develop a framework for a rigorous qualitative research study without suggesting that qualitative research is a step-by-step process. This is not a qualitative how-to book, but if you already know how to conduct interviews and take fieldnotes then you will find this book very useful as you plan your qualitative (or mixed methods) study. There is a chapter devoted to dissertation planning, but the book will be useful to anyone who wants to conduct a well thought out and useful qualitative research study.Was this review helpful?
