"Author Elizabeth G. Creamer provides an accessible, user-friendly text for graduate students and those new to the field of mixed methods. It aims to move the field to using fully integrated designs, and emphasizes the importance of the yield, particularly the meta-inferences, of mixed methods studies. Case examples from a variety of fields bring these concepts to life throughout the text." -- Leanne M. Kallemeyn
"Finally-a text that explains mixed methods research in a thorough yet readable format, one that is full of excellent examples and helpful tables, and that presents a perspective that is simultaneously detailed and broad in scope." -- Laura J. Meyer
"The text is comprehensive and well written. It provides a strong background and overview of mixed methods, and educates students on how to be consumers of mixed methods studies." -- Tina L. Freiburger
Methodological choices vary according to epistemology, discipline, and motivation, making the 'sell for a particular methodology quite difficult' (Cousin, 2009, p. 5). By weaving her argument for mixed methods across numerous research contexts, motivations, and disciplines, Creamer's work bypasses these challenges and asserts itself as a provocative guide for a wide range of researchers. Creamer's ability to make mixed methods accessible for readers- regardless of their discipline-is a vital contribution to mixed methods literature. -- Cherie D. Edwards, David Reeping, Ashley Taylor, and Alison Bowers
