“This is the best qualitative methods book I’ve seen, especially among books aimed at undergraduate audiences.” (Michael Irvin Arrington)“The book is exceptionally well written and easy to read even for students who know nothing about research methods.” (Martina Topic)“The engaging and accessible (generally) nature of writing is excellent and provides good inspiration and a good foundation to build on in terms of introductions to key steps and dimensions in qualitative research. The referencing of examples from ‘real’ research is attractive to lecturers and students alike and makes the introduction to qualitative research come alive.” (Anders Hansen)“An insightful and thoroughly researched book that will be extremely helpful for students aiming to engage with qualitative research at a deeper level.” (Sylvie Magerstädt)
