'This book distinguishes itself from the hundreds of books on qualitative and quantitative research with its focus on the literature review as a methodology. While its main audience is students in nursing and midwifery, clearly, students, instructors and researchers in many fields will find this a most useful volume for understanding and conducting a study using empirical and non-empirical literature as the data base. A real strength of this book is its engaging and user-friendly style.
