Students of sport often doubt the value of research. This book works to change that mindset. It explains what research is, how sports research is done, and shows how research in sport advances the discipline.
Needed something to bring Sports examples to my research methods class. some of the language is used differently than in the other textbook, which confused the students, but as a standalone it does not quite have enough detail. It is a very good introduction to use first.
