Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a thoughtful and well written introduction to the topic. I assign it in multiple undergraduate and graduate classes I teach. The chapter on interview technique is particularly helpful, giving students useful advice on topics like how to avoid asking leading questions. Highly recommended." - Amy Bruckman, College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology Praise for Previous Editions! "A comprehensive perspective of the nature of qualitative inquiry and the art of interviewing..." - Theory and Research in Social Education "A good starting point for training new researchers." - The Journal of Higher Education"

I was fortunate to take Irv's class at UMass. His book is the most comprehensive guide to interviewing, and I have used his method in my doctoral thesis and in multiple academic papers. Irv probably has exploitation issues with his method being used to collect consumer data, but the three-stage interview method is extremely effective in exploring consumption experiences.

Presently, while completing my doctoal degree, this text was recommended at my Dissertation Retreat with Capella University last June in Fairfax, Va. The text provides a step-by-step guide on how to conduct an interview, why should the student interview, methodological issues, an introduction to the Institutional Research Board (e.g., IRB), and other ethical issue related to your research study. I will be reading this text from cover to cover to obtain the information which is essential for the neophyte researcher who is conducting a Case study for the first time. The text is in layman's terms and easy to read---this is very important for doctoral students who are under a lot stress with other responsibilities (e.g., jobs)and limited time to complete the proposal. I rate Dr. Seidman's work as an outstanding piece of literature which will be helpful to many students now and in the future.

I found it to be a very useful tool in preparation for research interviews for my doctoral study. It is a 'guide' so if you are looking for more in-depth information then you should search for a text focusing more on theory.

This is being used in a graduate class of Qualitative Research Methods at the National University of Taiwan in Tainan, Taiwan with very good success. The success is in the form of interviews with high school students concerned with conflict resolution in an experiment, 'Innovative Competition Using High Temperature Superconductor for Magnetic Levitation'.
