Decided you want to teach yourself qualitative research? Decided that you'd like to actually make that research, not just journalism? Well, apparently this is a good place to start. The start is dense. Unbelievably philosophically loaded dense.

Memberi wawasan bagi pemula dalam penelitian kualitatif, khususnya grounded research. Tapi utnuk melakukan peneltiian grounded, belum cukup dengan hanya membaca buku ini. Kelebihan buku ini ialah dalam hal penjelasan langkah-langkah coding yang meliputi open coding, axial coding, dan selective coding (walaupun masih perlu berkerut dahi dan untuk melakukannya itu masih "urusan lain") dibandingkan buku-buku lain yang pernah saya baca (emang bacanya masih terbatas sekali sih...).
The writing style for this book is very clinical and not very engaging. However, the information and examples provided are incredibly useful, so stock up on some caffeine. There are a lot of references to other qualitative research books and studies, so if what you need isn't here, you can find it in the references.
I've often enjoyed assigned textbooks in my public health classes, but Stauss & Corbin mainly mystify me. If it wasn't for my qualitative data analysis class, I'm not sure I would know what grounded theory is after reading this book after all. The examples helped, but their wild metaphors did not.
Essential for anyone learning about Grounded Theory – whether you like the method itself or not (which I don't).
