This book is the book I've been waiting for! It is a thorough exploration of qualitative research - from theoretical underpinnings and processes of data collection right through to analysis and writing. It is accessible and clear and provides a really exceptional overview for those new to research methods. It also includes lots of links to further reading. I can't praise this book enough.
