How nice—and how rare—it is when a favorite text undergoes revision and comes out even better! Yow (book review editor, Oral History Review, and independent scholar) has once again hit the jackpot with her second edition of Recording Oral History (1994). . . This is a must own book for anyone, novice or expert, who engages or wants to engage in oral history research. Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries.
Journal Of The Illinois State Historical Society
...Yow's book provides an exceedingly valuable resource for historians, students, teachers, and others interested in recording and using interviews as a means to learn about the past. Recording Oral History is the kind of manual that researchers will want to return to repeatedly for advice and inspiration. 2006

Rebecca Sharpless
Recording Oral History, Second Edition is wonderful—it's like being with Valerie Yow in person and sharing her experiences of three decades of oral history interviewing. The book analyzes what happens when two human beings sit down together with a recorder, with all the wonder and messiness inherent in the oral history process. Yow thoroughly explains best practices in conducting interviews that are both of high technical quality and the highest ethical standards. Old and new readers alike will benefit from the added sections on memory, narrative, and interpretation.
Michael A. Gordon
Minor cosmetic changes, substantial renovations, and the two new wings add considerable value to this already invaluable, popular guide. Other excellent oral history manuals are available, but this one is the most comprehensive. It also is accessible, entertaining, and sensible.
Kim Lacy Rogers
Valerie Yow's Recording Oral History, Second Edition is an excellent guide for both the established oral historian and the student. Yow's discussions of issues such as ethics and legalities, varieties of oral history projects, and aspects of interpretation are succinct, graceful, and intelligent. I recommend it for all practitioners!
Mary A. Larson
In this third edition, Recording Oral History continues to serve as a primary reference for researchers interested in learning about the practice of oral history and the process of qualitative interviewing. Yow’s years as a practitioner of oral history are reflected throughout the book, and her experiences inform her approach to both practical and theoretical issues.
Ronald J. Grele
Recording Oral History has long been one of the ‘must have’ texts for teaching and practicing oral history; this third edition takes a popular resource and makes it better—representing the state of the art in oral history at a time of rapid change. Yow covers all aspects of oral history, wrestles with complex issues, and provides running commentary on best practices, all while avoiding obscure and convoluted language. It is the most comprehensive overview of the field available and serves as a wise guide for both newcomers and more practiced hands.
Alistair Thomson
Recording Oral History has been my oral history bible since its first edition in 1994. This third edition is, quite simply, the world's best guide to in-depth interviewing. It combines lucid synthesis of the multidisciplinary and international literature with insightful practical advice, enlivened by Yow's deep humanity and wry humor.
Anna Sheftel
Recording Oral History has become a classic methodological text for good reason. Yow guides the reader through crucial practical and philosophical questions using accessible and engaging language. These discussions are beautifully contextualized, drawing on diverse bodies of literature that highlight the expansiveness of contemporary oral history practice. The book is thorough, thoughtful, and does justice to the magic that happens when people commit to listening to each other’s stories. This third edition is an invaluable resource for any oral historian.
