This book will guide your students through five different qualitative approaches – thematic analysis, interpretative phenomenological analysis, grounded theory, narrative analysis and discourse analysis. Applying them all to a common data set, this book gives a step-by-step on each approach and helps students work out which is the right one for them.

Plus, with a whole new part on qualitative data collection – including chapters on interviewing, social media data and visual methodologies – this new edition is the ultimate resource for students engaged in qualitative psychological research or studying methods at any level.

I appreciate this is a 3rd edition, so the content is obviously meeting the standard. I agree - excellent coverage of what it does cover. However, the scope is a little narrow for my qualitative teaching for this to be a primary text.
Although the title specifically tells us that the focus in on analysing data, there are gaps which include discussions around getting the data collected ready to analyse. For example, transcribing methods (verbatim vs comprehension by reader), the role of field notes and use of non-verbal cues (etc.) The coverage of content analysis methods is narrow - particularly with respect to the place of directed content analysis.
