For anyone interested in action research, irrespective of experience and expertise, this text, explaining the origins, forms, process, problems and functions of action research, and how these relate to position and role of action researcher, should be essential reading.-- Andrew Townsend
At a time when academic 'experts' are increasingly setting practice agendas, this scholarly but deeply practical book helps practitioners to reclaim ownership of their professions.-- Gary Rolfe
Jean McNiff is an inspiration. Imbued by her values, she takes the `mystique' out of action research and provides an accessible, practical and useful step by step guide to doing action research for novices and experts alike. This book will support action researchers to live by their values and produce robust accounts of their research. I look forward to recommending it as a `must read' to my fellow action researchers.-- Josephine Bleach
