'This practical guide refreshingly demystifies the qualitative research process, relentlessly pushing an agenda for uncomplicated but high standards across the board and generously enabling anyone, no matter how inexperienced, to get on with it and do it well.
'Like water wings for the qualitative research beginner, Successful Qualitative Research: A Practical Guide for Beginners gracefully supports methodological novices until they learn to swim elegantly, on their own, in qualitative waters… As a teacher, researcher or a student, you will want to thank the gifted methodologists Braun and Clarke for making it all seem so easy' Michelle FineThe City University of New York, NY, USA
For students who are undertaking qualitative research this book is an essential read. It is comprehensive, well written and provides the student with both basic and more advanced information. I have added it to the BSc undergraduate and masters reading list.
A great duo Braun and Clark. The book has lovely examples of research questions and outlines the practical aspects of qualitative research. Presented in a well written way and easy to access for students. It guides the students through the process of qualitative research offering suggestions, guidance and support.
An excellent resource for post-graduate students doing qualitative research.
This book provides an excellent introduction to undergraduate students wishing to conduct thematic analysis of their qualitative research. It is highly accessible and practical.
This book is a gem - for all qualitative researchers and those who are about to become one. It is easy to read and to understand; also because there are vivid examples from the wider literature but also from the focus group example conduced particularly for the book. Although it says it is "for beginners" it is also valuable as a resource and reference for advanced researchers.
This is an excellent text for both students and researchers. It provides an excellent overview of how to conduct rigorous qualitative research. As such, I have recommended this text to students and utilised this as an indicative text for my qualitative research methods module.
The book provides a valuable resource for students undertaking qualitative research. The layout and style is clear and guides the reader through the process. It has been included on the reading list and copies are in the university library
This is an essential accessible research reference text for any students contemplating primary qualitative research or study. The incremental structure of this book practically guides the reader through the key fundamentals of qualitative research questions and design, data collection and analysis.

Excellent book for beginning and seasoned researchers - it is clear about the steps needed to undertake qualitative research
Easy to read and understand guide to the qualitative research process particularly useful for analysis & thematic analysis. I will be adding to my relevant reading lists.
It answers a lot of the questions that students get stuck with and is very practical so really useful from that point of view. Would probably need a book that does the different qualitative "approaches" by chapter as well as this one.
Useful and detailed information on qualitative research for undergraduate students at all levels.
This book is brilliant. Whilst it says on the cover this is for beginners, it's for everyone. Accessible to the novice and thought provoking for the more experienced. This is an essential book for quals researchers!
A lively and accessible introduction to qualitative research, with lots of useful online resources for students.
This is a very well written text, but, unlike its title, it is not 'just' a practical guide, and it goes far beyond 'beginner' level. Braun and Clarke have written extensively in the past about thematic analysis and very good coverage of that is included here, as is material on interviews, focus groups and quality criteria. Much of the material is of course available in other textbooks, but this brings things together in a way that is accessible for both those new to research and those already engaged in qual research.
