"This text is engaging, practical and balanced. Howitt draws the reader in by highlighting key figures in the evolution of qualitative research... Howitt grounds his text in important historical detail and conceptual foundational material; however, unlike some qualitative reading, it is not dense or jargon-heavy. This is supported by the book's structure; for example, each chapter includes an overview at the start and glossaries, key points and links to resources at the end, highlighted in blue text boxes to aid searching... The companion website is very useful, offering multiple-choice questions and flashcards for revision, which should prove popular with students. Comprehensive, clear and easy to navigate, with a valuable companion website. This is a welcome addition to the growing body of work on qualitative psychology and is valuable for experienced researchers who want to broaden their knowledge base, as well as for novices." - Reviewed in Times Higher EducationFrom the Publisher:
