Excellent text for beginners in qualitative research. It's written in such a way that undergrads will not only understand but actually enjoy learning about it. Only appropriate at a graduate level if the student has not yet learnt the basics. Enjoyable read!

Nice introductory overview of qualitative methods; some material for thought. Found it a little odd that 90% of the researchers mentioned were female (or so it seemed), so wondering about bias.

Yup, another book for my research class. Thank heavens the chapters are short.
