Sadly, this book came too late. Although it covers not only the theoretical and methodological issues of qualitative research, but also aspects of getting published, I had to choose other books instead. Nevertheless, after an individual review of this book, I have it on my TOP 5 - shortlist of essential books for qualitative research lectures. Especially the structure is supporting me as a lectures as I can easily follow it in my sessions. Thus, a collection of further materials for lecturers will make this book a central source for forthcoming programs.
