"the book does a good job of minimizing the usual problems in a collection of papers by different authors. ...There are ample references in each chapter, as well as a bibliography. This is indeed a guide, as it often just points to other sources. It should be very useful to graduate students and researchers engaged in empirical software engineering research."
(Andrew R. Huber, ACM Computing Reviews, February 2009)
