I particularly recommend chapters 2 and 4. Both concern the time consuming but essential preparatory aspects to achieve excellent research which are frequently overlooked or 'bolted-on' by students in their anxiety to get crackingToni HiltonMarketing and Business Strategy, University of Westminster
The book provides a good introduction for case study research and I recommend the book always in my courses.
Will be on the recommended list for the new course.
A good text, but the students struggled with the concepts
This book is of great interest to any student considering possibilities of case studies. Its excellent reading in general, however gives a cutting edge to students pursing qualitative studies namely case studies.
Useful case study approach which many accounting students can use effectively to stimulate their research projects.
a useful text for general business students.
A useful text to get students started on the strategic project.
This is an excellent introduction for the novice and very refreshing for the experienced researcher. Easy to read and much food for thought!
This is a great text for case study research. It offers a perfect blend of literature and explanation. It is a must for all students who are introduced to case study research for the first time. It offers a strong step by step approach to cases which I feel this text does more than any other book. the level of analysis is not as strong as other texts, but suitable for both post graduate and undergraduate students.
Students seem to be increasingly wanting to use case studies in their research. This book shows them how to do this properly.
Not entirely suited to my students' needs, but that is by no means a criticism of the book. This is a clear, step-by-step read.
Not entirely suited to my students' needs, but that is by no way a criticism of the book. This is a clear, cohesive and useful read.

This spesialised book has been added to the research library database. I anticipate it will be of huge value to our case study reasearchers
This is a good basic text for those students trying to understand the process of case study research. The appeal of this book is mainly that it caters for the 'needs' of management and business students (which was quite an important factor, since business school students tend to like texts that are aimed at them, rather than texts from related disciplines, e.g. sociology). The explanations are very clear, stages are very clear. I think it is a good supplemental source.
Well-written and easy to understand and apply.
An easy to handle book.
The students use it a basement to go on with their work.
Case study research is frequently considered as the "easy way", which it is not. This book helps students to understand what case study research really is. Therefore it is important to read it carefully before and while writing a case study-based dissertation.
