This is a great reference guide for all aspects of qualitative research. I used it for a course but will keep it as a reference for the future.

Its biggest downside is its horrendous price for such a small paperback book.

Awesome scientific approach for explaining society and the social groups that make up our world. If you've ever done a focus study or think you may need to in the future then this is an excellent guide on how to do qualitative social research.

Great guide to participant observation. I have a library copy but might invest in my own. Chapters 6-8 on "focusing data" as groundwork for analysis are especially good. As a new researcher, I liked and needed the section on what it means to do social science framing.
