    I Also Recommend:

    Worthwhile investment for serious students

    Purchased on recommendation from a professor.
    Third edition adds significant contributions to prior editions, including "42 new chapters, authors, and/or coauthors" (Denzin & Lincoln, 2005,ix).
    Extensive discussion of a variety of qualitative methodologies, with examples.
    Only being familiar with quantitative methodologies, I was interested in a substantial resource for understanding qualitative methods.
    Believe this will prove invaluable for further academic work.
    Would recommend to anyone who expects to conduct qualitative research on an ongoing basis.
