This book fills in any gaps in knowledge a student (particularly at the graduate level) might have in pursuing their research. There are some questions that seem almost too obvious to ask and this book helps you answer them. In the book, Abbott takes his reader through each stage of the research process and provides explanations for things that are perfunctory but lacking any rationale (for example, you'll learn the purpose of an annotated bibliography!).
Abbott's thoughtful and lucidly written work has greatly helped me with my research process, and I expect to continuously refer to it as I progress towards my dissertation.
I highly recommend this student to any student in the social sciences or humanities. It is clearly written and does not dumb down information while simultaneously being highly informative.
It is mostly geared towards the library work for social scientists. It might be helpful for those in the social fields. My research is in humanities. The strategies are generally fairly applicable to my field too. But, in general, I don't think any one would miss that much if he/she skipped this book. Most parts of the books are just commonsense advise on how to do library search.
