Sharp's book is current (2012) and informative, and is particularly useful in exploring the benefits and disadvantages of various research and data collection methodologies (such as observations, questionnaires, and interviews). This will help practitioners explore which methodologies (or combination of methodologies) are most suited to their individual education research projects.

I also found that Chapter 9 covered qualitative and quantitative data analysis in great detail, which particularly helped me critically evaluate my results and recognise flaws in my approach.

Tummons is an excellent author within the sector and his approach and structure offers an easy-to-digest, but detailed insight into professionalism within the LLS.

I particularly found his sections on CPD, reflective practice, and defining professionalism useful, informative and critical, and I believe professional tutors and those in training would benefit from exploring this book.
