Stringer writes with passion and enthusiasm about ways to help people become better problem solvers. His approach to action research "Look, Think, Act" is a simple, but effective way of gathering information about the problem, analysing that information, and then formulating a plan of action based on that analysis. Good advice and useful procedures for anybody looking to improve the systems or societies they are working with.

I expected to hate this book and I ended up carrying it everywhere with me while doing a work project. This book helped me focus on true real life research with researcher involvement. I am still using it and the class is over. If you are going to be working with the community, doing research, or wondering how to get involved in the most productive way possible this is a must have.
While I did appreciate the theory and philosophy section of the book, I felt that the process section (the bulk of the book) was far too long and drawn out. Likely my perception of the book was tainted given that it was "required reading."
Great book for the basics great book if you are looking for guidance on how to put together an action research proposal.
