This handbook brings together the comprehensive range of perspectives that new researchers are looking for. It is very well edited, and communicates ideas and arguments extremely well.
An excellent must have book for postgraduate especially PhD students wanting to use or using Grounded Theory methodology.

Excellent all round book that is very useful for the fundamentals of grounded theory. I will recommend this book to my dissertation students, however it is not a book that i can adopt as it will only used by specific students who are looking at Ground Theory
Excellent, clearly written textbook to support qualitative data analysis approaches. Interprets grounded theory for the 21st century.
Excellent text for those using grounded theory in their dissertations. This is an essential read.
Recommended to Master students and course - still in evaluation.
This is a very good introduction to the use, history and nuances of this methodological approach.
Very good, relevant and interresting book
A must read for all students and academics that consider using grounded theory in their research projects.
Provides a very broad overview of discussions in the field of Grounded Theory. The book contains something about every related aspect. I have adopted a few texts in different courses I teach on qualitative research methods.
This textbook provides a comprehensive overview of this grounded theory specially for those students working and want to deepening their understanding of this theory.
A good resource for qualitative elements of research methods modules
Essential textbook for any researcher using grounded theory approach.
I recommend this book. It provides the reader with a full overview of what grounded theory is and explores critical aspects of it in great depth.
The SAGE Handbook of Grounded Theory is a comprehensive work on grounded theory perspectives for respective research designs. It gives a very good overview on the various concerns and aspects related to the design of research based on the idea of grounded theory. I used the handbook both in the international master course our institute realizes together with the UN-University in Bonn as well as 'ordinary' master courses at the Geography Department at Bonn University - and of course I recommended SAGE publications in general to the courses participants.
A great resource for all MSc and doctoral level students engaged in Grounded Theory research. The book is accessible to all levels, but perhaps more as a reference tool and not a working tool, due to its size and portability.
A comprehensive introduction to contemporary grounded theory. Very good.
Due to this being quite a specific research approach it is only recommended. However the major application, and variations in GT are covered well
Good reference book
