Very useful for initial research method clarification, and students find it helpful in their early methodology selection.
Excellent book and it is insightful for my students.
Excellent resource for students to go deeper into the topic; well written and described issues
I found this book immensely readable. It does not oversimplify or terrify a new post-graduate researcher seeking to identify what they don't know and consolidate what they do know. An ideal book for a reading list for those starting their doctoral training or those teaching postgraduates about research and researching.
Very clear introduction to social science research with good diagrams and clearly written content.
