"This text is very comprehensive and includes topics not often found in other qualitative research methods books (i.e. social autopsies, multi-method designs). It thoroughly covers a lot of important "background" and theoretical information also not usually covered in other texts (i.e. history of qualitative methods, politics, etc.)."

- Amy Leisenring, San Jose State University

"The writing style is very clear, engaging, and effective...The authors have a deep knowledge of their subject and synthesize them very effectively. The exercises are very well conceived and seem to be very effective in the learning of course material."

- Keith Mann, Cardinal Stritch University

"I like the fact that the authors do a lot of comparing and contrasting with quantitative approaches (which I feel is useful), and I also like the fact that they include a number of interesting and relevant case studies, which will help hold students' interest while they're reading, and also provide some good 'jumping off' points and examples to consider during class discussions."

- Jan Buhrmann, Illinois College

"I like the separation of design and method. I like that there is a discussion of the politics of research. I like the examples based on research that has already been conducted and with which academics and grad students might themselves already be familiar."

- Liahna Gordon, California State University, Chico
