    Nice introductory book on Qualitative research. As a wannabe-thesis writer, this book proved useful and enriching to me. PROS: Clearly written, this book does not assume that you know it all; rather, it takes a very introductory approach so that as long as you read it from the beginning there will be little you will have to research in other sources. CONS: Maybe because of its introductory approach, there are several topics that will definitely require additional sources. Document Analysis techni Nice introductory book on Qualitative research. As a wannabe-thesis writer, this book proved useful and enriching to me. PROS: Clearly written, this book does not assume that you know it all; rather, it takes a very introductory approach so that as long as you read it from the beginning there will be little you will have to research in other sources. CONS: Maybe because of its introductory approach, there are several topics that will definitely require additional sources. Document Analysis techniques, for example, are too briefly covered and the section on software-aided qualitative research could have surely been a little more comprehensive. CONCLUSION: Good textbook for qualitative research, as long as you are ready to supplement it with additional resources for the areas you are working on.

    Great book in qualitative research, you will learn how to collect your data and analyze it. As a researcher, you can start with it but there're many other options so you should pick what fits you.

    Clear and direct textbook. I picked this up to clarify my assumptions before taking a course on Action Based Research. This was helpful in helping me to further my understanding and vocabulary of qualitative research.

    Fantastic textbook for a qualitative research novice! Comprehensive, easy to read, and peppered with good resources. It can get repetitive at times, but that can be solved with skimming anyway.

    Painful. Poorly written with little to offer to other than introductory students.

    Essential for planning research, a clear and concise text that breaks it down and explains the nuances.

    Really liked this book for its academic values. This was a recommended reading by Prof A, and I am glad that it is one of those things that she recommends that I have pursued. As a part time PHD student, I need to be choosy about what I read as time would best be used to review literature. For those pursuing the qualitative path, the prospects can look bleak because it is a relatively new method and might not have much references.

This was a recommended reading by Prof A, and I am glad that it is one of those things that she recommends that I have pursued. As a part time PHD student, I need to be choosy about what I read as time would best be used to review literature. For those pursuing the qualitative path, the prospects can look bleak because it is a relatively new method and might not have much references. In this one book Dr Merriam explained all that a student needs to know, and if that is not enough, she was very diligent with referencing in text and as appendix. The book covers topics such as the whats in the first part, the hows in the second and in final part the book described what needs to be in a qualitative research proposal. As an academic, the authors had every reason to use academic jargon and confuse the student even more but they instead chose easy to read style and this I truly appreciate.

    Çeviride bazı sıkıntılar olsa da kitabın tavsiyeleri faydalı ve araştırmacılara empatik bir bakış açısı sergiliyor. Bir yandan da düşünmeden edemedim: Pattern desen demek. Design dizayn demek. Çeviride bir sıkıntı olmalı. Desen ve dizayn aynı anlamda kullanılmış ama aynı manadaki kelimeler değiller bunlar kesinlikle. Daha güzel bir çeviri ile daha faydalı olabilir bu kitap!

    This is an excellent and easy to understand resource on how to conduct qualitative research. Merriam walks the reader through each part of the process step by step and provides many concrete examples from different fields so that the reader can see their own future research starting to take shape.

    As an introduction to qualitative research, this book helped me understand some foundational elements. I do wish it would have provided more concrete examples so that I could more easily apply it directly to my own research.

    An easy read for any introductory student to qualitative research. Most useful was the last chapter that discussed the methodologies chapter of a dissertation. Overall, it was very quick, very easy, almost too easy, but quite simple enough to cite validation for a qualitative study.

    This book is very helpful for beginning researchers because it's meant simply to provide an overview. For researchers needing more indepth information in case study, they probably want to check out Yin (2009). Another good compliment text to this one is Punch's (2005) Intro to Social Research.

    So. Repetitive. Good information but unnecessary repetition of the same information over and over in each chapter.

    For a research handbook, this reads surprisingly easily. It's a great reference that has helped with shaping my dissertation proposal.

    Not exactly the most exciting book...at all...but it did offer a lot of good advice for my action research paper.
