Critical realism is slowly becoming an important meta-theoretical framework (particularly in Sociology) with scholars such as Phil Gorski, Christian Smith, and Margaret Archer as leading proponents. That said, this is the most accessible introduction to the topic and its usefulness. If you are in the discipline, it is certainly worth reading and probably worth owning. If you aren't, this would only be for the most adventurous. If you are just philosophically minded and want to know more about critical realism, you are better off just heading straight for Roy Bhaskars' works (or Christian Smith's 2010 release).
