"A wise book--honest and probing--that is easy to read but covers hard and big issues...unique in its goal of making ethnography a way for the reader to live his or her life." -- John Omohundro, SUNY Potsdam
"Asking and Listening is guided by superb questions and wise answers. It rests on the authors' sound knowledge of the discipline and is enriched by their years of experience with the field and colleagues now deceased." -- Karla Poewe, University of Calgary
"Not only does the book make the ethnographic enterprise accessible to introductory students, it makes a powerful contribution to the philosophy behind the conduct of ethnography. It has insights that would not be possible without the authors' long familiarity with the field. No one else could have written this book." -- Mari Womack, University of California, Los Angeles
"This is a fantastic little book. Rich and full despite its length. Engaging." --Jim Warner, University of Northern Colorado
