This is an excellent book. As one who had studied quantitative research and is now doing a switch to qualitative for a doctorate, this book is giving me just what I need. Organized, well written and extremely helpful.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been in the dissertation phase for too long. I had a quantitative study ready and committee approved just for the top reviewer to tell me to do a qualitative instead. I am not a qualitative-type-of-girl. I love my numbers so this was such a difficult change for me to undertake. This version of Merriam's Qualitative Research was a God-send to me. The head of the research department suggested I get it since my new study is basic qualitative and that was pure genius. This book breaks down the process into simple, real English. I could not recommend this book strongly enough for anyone who really needs to understand the qualitative research process.

If you are learning or considering qualitative research studies, Merriam makes understanding the process much more palatable. I purchased this book for a doctoral course and it is one of two required. Because it puts concepts and practice in such transferable language, it bridges the gap from novice to knowledge. Chapter six is great for learning how to hone your observation skills!
