Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jin-Shei Lai, PhD (Univ of Illinois at Chicago Coll of Associated Health Professions)
Description: The authors provide practical guidelines for research by using simple but explicit language.
Purpose: The purpose, based upon the authors' description, is to guide the researching therapists through the research process, and this book meets the proposed objective.
Audience: According to authors, the target audience is researching therapists. From this reviewer's point of view, it is appropriate for students or inexperienced researchers who have limited research related experience. It may prove over-simplified for experienced researchers.
Features: This book attempts to cover a wide range of research topics, from preparing research to chairing a session at a conference. It helps its audience become familiar with the "research society." It also uses graphs to illustrate the concepts, and this facilitates better comprehension. However, there is a lack of further discussion in some important areas such as "how to formulate a good research question" or "how to value a research paper." These concepts are important in terms of conducting good research. Also, the content is not balanced. It emphasizes the area of communication too much, which is important but should not overshadow the research itself.
Assessment: This book is worthwhile for reference, but may not be an appropriate textbook. Compared to another book such as "Research for the Health Professional: A Practical Guide, 2nd Edition. F.A. Davis, 1997" by Bailey, it does not provide the necessary concept of conducting and judging good research, which is critical for being a good researcher.
