"This book is well suited for a novice in qualitative research, as the chapters are written in a clear and simple style. Those who are more experienced in qualitative research could include this in their collection because it is comprehensive and replete with examples from studies that illustrate the content."

The Qualitative Report

A how-to guide for the qualitative researcher and student. Bernard and Ryan have produced a text of surgical precision which cuts through the rhetoric about qualitative research and arms researchers with the knowledge and tools to deliver refined analysis and troubleshoot classic issues. An essential text for all qualitative researchers and their teachers.

This book provides an essential resource for any scholar interested in qualitative research. It gives a solid introduction with practical tips and examples of how to analyse qualitative data in a systematic and rigorous way. It is very well written and clearly structured, making it a valuable resource both for instructors and students.

This text is especially strong in offering concrete and practical examples of how to conceptualize, gather, and analyze qualitative data. For students who are new to this approach to research, this text offers a fresh, interesting, and engaging approach.

This is a specialized book. It covers all aspects of qualitative data analysis in details. It is an excellent book for a course in qualitative data analysis. But my course is an introductory course in qualitative methods. For this purpose the book is too detailed and specialized. I was hoping to be able to use chapters of it, but found out that it was not easy to include separate chapters.
