Overview

The book that has been a resource and training tool for countless applied researchers, evaluators, and graduate students has been completely revised with hundreds of new examples and stories illuminating all aspects of qualitative inquiry. Patton has created the most comprehensive, systematic and up-to-date review of qualitative methods available.

Patton has retained and expanded upon the Exhibits that highlight and summarize major issues and guidelines, the summative sections, tables, and figures as well as the sage advice of the Sufi Master, Halcolm. This revision will help readers integrate and make sense of the great volume of qualitative works published in the past decade.

Patton¿s book is unlike any other graduate text I have ever read! He elucidates upon qualitative theory so that it is well understood, and provides guidance through the research process. His profound antidotes, metaphors, and creative writing make this book an enjoyable read.
