Useful text for our undergraduates to get started on Nvivo software.

I will recommend this book to all researchers who are using/intend to use NVivo to analyse their qualitative data. My institution supports NVivo, so makes it available under licence from QSR. We offer researchers one day-long course on using the package. For many researchers, this is insufficient. They need a book that will help them understand what the package can do and how they can use it. This book was written by one of the developers of NVivo and is the best introduction I have seen. The only problem is the rapidity of version change. The book does not cover functions added since publication.

Not recommended, but not because it is a bad book. Not at all. New versions of NVivo appear so quickly, no printed book could ever keep abreast.
