“Writing up Qualitative Research has CHIME – compassion, humor, intelligence, mindfulness of humanity, and empirical evidence. Wolcott’s empathic compassion is a major strength. The content of every chapter shows that Wolcott has fel and grappled with all the same anxieties and fears of writers at every level.”

—Judy K. C. Bentley, SUNY at Cortland
