MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book is written in a clear, accessible style in a way which demystifies the sometimes complex research philosophy and theory. The chapters include useful illustration that help to conceptualize the narrative, as well as researcher reflections which offer real examples of the research theory in practice for the reader to consider. [...] In addition to the reflections, there are boxes with tips offering practical advice, as well as reflective questions to help prompt a spirit of enquiry, and lists of useful resources for further reading. This makes for an interesting and engaging text-how often can one say that about a research text?" - Karen Strickland, Edinburgh Napier University, Educational Developments
