This is an advanced nursing text book and being that it is very specific so this is not a review of its content. So much of that depends on a course instructor and the individual student's interest in the subject matter. My issue is with the fact that so many Kindle editions of text books do not have page numbers, this one included. Anyone working at any academic level is aware of the importance of page numbers in first, following along with course content and second, producing authentic citations. I am afraid that I am going to have to abort my great experiment into digital text books this semester and exchange this and several other texts for their paper counterparts.

I had a hard time using this book for my papers and had to refer to a different book for most of my questions. This book would be great for people who have had an intro to research methods already, but if its been awhile or you are having trouble understanding the basics (such as theoretical/conceptual frameworks) then this book will not help you very much. It is easy to read and is full of the latest information.

I ordered this book for a class I was taking. Only after ordering did I realize that the page numbers cannot be viewed on my ipad. I contacted Amazon.com who stated I needed to contact the publisher...REALLY? So now I have a book that I cannot cite page numbers in APA format. What a waste!

Nursing textbooks are typically dry and wordy. This one is different. The authors keep the subject interesting by using practical situations to illustrate EBP concepts. They make the subject easy to understand because they keep it simple. If you're looking for an EBP text that isn't overloaded with dreadful academia overspeak, try this one.

This have provided me with the foundation and guidance that I need to take this class. This will be one book that is kept near at hand for future projects on Evidence Based Practice projects.

I absolutely despise this textbook. It is very repetitive and I believe it makes the subject overly complicated. The authors explain concepts in hundreds of words that could easily be explained in just a few. In addition, it reads as if much of the language is made up gibberish, as if the authors are inventing concepts and terminology to somehow elevate the material.
