This was actually a pretty well written text--repetitive enough for the 'tough stuff' to sink in but not so much that you wanted to scream. It also had an index, glossary, appendices and all the other good book parts that too many books are lacking these days. I may actually have to spring for a copy of my own instead of using a library copy.
This is a good beginning look at mixed methods research. The writing style is relaxed and descriptive, and the information was valuable. It goes step by step through various approaches and ways to organize mixed methods research projects.

Although a good chunk of the discussion is irrelevant for non-university research, I still find this book to be immensely helpful in thinking through research design, particularly at the proposal stage.
