Decided you want to teach yourself qualitative research? Decided that you'd like to actually make that research, not just journalism? Well, apparently this is a good place to start. The start is dense. Unbelievably philosophically loaded dense. While I think I understand why it was important to the authors to situate themselves in a several hundred years of philosophy of science and realism, I'm not sure I needed to read it first. While this risks a degree of naivete, the philosophy made a lot m ...more

I know I will keep reading this book all over again, but here is my comment for the first time: Corbin and Strauss have helped me to clarify my thoughts about grounded theory methodology and showed me how comprehensive a grounded theory study should be. Interestingly, after I finished the book, I felt both stressed and relieved, because I still have sooooo many things to do, but I'm not the only novice qualitative researcher who is worried and confused.

Though no bedside reading, I did find the book both challenged me in my own writing/research as well as confirmed the approaches I was taking. It had been recommended by an acquaintance working on her PhD -- and important to me because i am so out of touch with the academic world.
Memberi wawasan bagi pemula dalam penelitian kualitatif, khususnya grounded research. Tapi utnuk melakukan peneltiian grounded, belum cukup dengan hanya membaca buku ini. Kelebihan buku ini ialah dalam hal penjelasan langkah-langkah coding yang meliputi open coding, axial coding, dan selective coding (walaupun masih perlu berkerut dahi dan untuk melakukannya itu masih "urusan lain") dibandingkan buku-buku lain yang pernah saya baca (emang bacanya masih terbatas sekali sih...).
The writing style for this book is very clinical and not very engaging. However, the information and examples provided are incredibly useful, so stock up on some caffeine. There are a lot of references to other qualitative research books and studies, so if what you need isn't here, you can find it in the references.
I've often enjoyed assigned textbooks in my public health classes, but Stauss & Corbin mainly mystify me. If it wasn't for my qualitative data analysis class, I'm not sure I would know what grounded theory is after reading this book after all. The examples helped, but their wild metaphors did not.
