I bought this book because I needed to learn how to do qualitative data analysis IMMEDIATELY. Basically, a bunch of work got dumped on me (i.e. 75 pages of transcripted interviews) and I had to get started quickly.

This book is amazing because it focuses on DOING qualitative data analysis. It's a step-by-step guide to get from raw data to solid conclusions (which you can back up using your data). It provides just enough theory to let you know why you're doing what, without getting bogged down. Most importantly, it provides TONS of examples which make things much more concrete and helps with understanding.

There are several different ways to 'do' qualitative data analysis, and this book focuses on a single one. I like this since the book is more concise and the methods the authors use are solid and make intuitive sense.

Basically, I went from knowing nothing about qualitative data analysis to knowing enough to DO qualitative data analysis, just by reading this book. I found the writing style enjoyable and not overly academic, which again helps with comprehension and learning how to 'do'.

I am finishing up my dissertation - a qualitative case study - and this book was invaluable!! It really helped me logicall and thoughtfully assess my qualitative interview data. The text was easy to understand and will hold up against that dissertation committee review. I really can't recommended enough if you have any qualitative data to analyze. There are other good things in there as well for coding and general qualitative study methodology.

I am working on a Doctor of Ministry degree and didn't know how to organize my survey data. Tried statistical (quantitative) criteria, such as "correlation coefficents" which only resulted in frustration and paralysis. This book showed me that what I'm doing is QUALITATIVE research. The difference: Quantitative research STARTS with a hypothesis that has to be "proved." Qualitative research takes results and PRODUCES a hypothesis, which then becomes one's thesis. The authors give researchers a "cookbook" method for crunching one's data, resulting in a narrative. Hugely helpful to completing my doctoral thesis! Highly recommend it for anyone working in non-scientific fields.
