Recommends it for: social work researchers of all perspectives
i struggled in my research methods class due to differing research paradigms and couldn't figure out how to translate my work. reading this book provided me with the language and understanding i needed to figure out what was going on. i wish i'd read it from the start!
Reading the last chapter today to prepare for class tomorrow! I've read a lot about the research process, this book is up there as one of the best. Great illustration and discussion of different research methods with a focus on validity and reliability. Students struggling to understand the research process would benefit greatly from this resource.
