“...an excellent resource and reference tool for anybody undertaking social research. It provides practical advice on how to choose the most appropriate method for the research being undertaken and offers valuable advice and direction in negotiating various issues...It is written in an accessible format...to encourage the reader to consider the research process from a practical and personal viewpoint...This second edition of the book includes new and up-to-date material and touches on areas often neglected in mainstream research books. These include techniques such as action research; and key issues such as time management and choosing a research supervisor. The book addresses the ‘writing-up’ process in some detail and covers a number of fundamental issues often ignored by more experienced researchers, such as grammar, referencing, spelling and use of tables and graphs...Not only is it an excellent starting point for new researchers and students, but undoubtedly the more experienced researcher will also find it valuable. Furthermore, those involved in teaching research methods or supervising research students would find this is a useful source of information, exercises and ideas.” – Social Research News (Social Research News 2003-10-30)
