This is a powerful, richly nuanced, evocative work. It is masterfully grounded in the grounded theory strategies and practices of established scholars. It represents a stunning and brilliantly innovative intervention. It provides ground zero - the starting place for the next generation of social science scholars. A major accomplishment. -- Norman K. Denzin, College of Communications Scholar and Professor of Sociology
This is an excellent book. It is easy to read, gives lots of practical advice and is quite profound. If you are serious about studying the conceptual universes and the interior worlds of research participants in a way which recognises that the researcher is intimately involved in the construction and analysis of data, this is a book which will make you re-think how you conduct research. -- Paul Webb, Research Manager, Praxis Care, Belfast
