Editorial Reviews

Review

“There are not many textbooks available (if any) that can match [this book’s] intelligence.” (Elizabeth M. Lozano 2010-10-08)

“The use of examples from media and communication exhibit a very wide reading of the discipline. The writers do a great job keeping up with current technologies that assist in qualitative inquiry!” (John R. Baldwin 2010-10-08)

If you are a communication student who wants to study qualitative research methods then it's definitely a must read book. One of the very few books that discusses qualitative methods from communication perspective. They use easy to digest language and illustrate everything with stories to make it easier to understand. It's very basic though so it will be suitable for students who take intro class to qualitative methods.

Good introduction on qualitative research methods. The book was well written and easy to follow. It was very helpful when I was writing my qualitative term paper.

This book was too verbose. As I read the book, I caught myself wanting to tell the author to just get to the point. Most of the book is also very anecdotal, which I thought was overused. Overall, the book presents some interesting topics but I wouldn't suggest it for someone who sought general information on qualitative research methods.
