"This is a sorely-needed book that gives an understandable introduction to one of the most important methods of communication research to students and scholars alike."(Marshall Scott Poole)
"Neuendorf's writing is both appropriate and accessible, a rare accomplishment in a book on research methods. Neuendorf provides a sophisticated yet readily comprehensible treatment of content analysis."(William Evans)
“Skimming through the book left me with a sense of optimism, as the value of computer assistance and of electronic archives is mentioned in various parts of the book.” (Communications: The European Journal of Communication Research 2003-09-15)
