I read this to assist my MBA thesis team in the construction and design of our marketing questionnaire last year. It does an admirable job delivering questionnaire design in a single, readable volume. Not the kind of book you will savor with a glass of red beside a roaring fire, but it does the job.

I actually read the 1982 version, borrowed from Gutman Library. An oldie but goodie, for sure. That one had only two authors Sudman & Bradburn so hopefully I can take a look at the newer edition with input from the 3rd author.
