He does not make the point, but it becomes clear that "quantitative" and "qualitative" are misguided, misleading, equivocal adjectives - therefore harmful. Other scholars have pointed that out; Creswell makes it easy to understand how those traditional terms are unnecessary.
Good read for beginners who want to build basic understanding of the philosophy behind science. Necessary reading for PhDs who might haven't heard about it (not uncommon).
Other readers commented on serious factual errors and poor style. In my opinion, this don't change the quality of a book written for understanding by those who still don't know. For some reason, this quality is somewhat rare.
