Based on a very careful analysis of original writings, this book will quickly establish itself as a seminal text and a definitive work for anyone interested in studying or using grounded theory as originated. It provides in one book, new insights and practical guidance on how to use grounded theory.
In addition to its ease of reading and its useful structure the book goes much further than most in helping to understand the nature of Grounded Theory and where its limits might lie...Without going into any more detail I would like to say that the thoughts and experiences of the authors are professionally delivered in an interesting and well structured text. All the key issues which are required for the successful implementation of a Grounded Theory project are covered.
This is a significant text in grounded theory written with PhD and early career researchers in mind.
Gibson and Hartman’s use of 3 different Grounded Theory cases is persuasive and purposeful: throughout the second half of the text, the authors have drawn on insightful examples from these 3 studies, making the link between theory and fieldwork realities all the more palpable for novice and experienced researchers alike.
It is an ideal book for scholars who have just started their research pursuit via grounded theory and for the already experienced grounded theorists as well. The textbook manages to simplify a complicated theory in a modern, gradual and smooth way by giving simultaneously practical and up-to-date insights. Most importantly, the book enables the readers to think critically and gain new insights about grounding theory, even if they are already aware of the theory.
Useful to complement key texts
This is the most pedagogically accomplished book on grounded theory I know of - clearly useful for undergraduate students. It will be included in recommended reading not only in the "From Theory to Research Results in Peace and Conflict Studies" course but also in the subsequent course "Bachelor Thesis", March-June 2015 (both in Peace and Conflict Studies programme at Malmö University). The library will be asked to also buy it as E-book if possible.
A really useful and easy to read book. Very specific to one type of research therefore only suggested to those students who want to embark on grounded theory.
A worth reading book on grounded theory! The authors offer a valuable critique of grounded theory, and in particular of constructivist grounded theory. They do engage with issues that few grounded theories explore in depth. For those who first read the discovery book, this new book will clarify a number of fuzzy concepts.
Clear and constructive advice and discussion which offers the reader an interesting insight as well as practical skill to progress from text to research in action.
A helpful bland of theory and practical application.
Excellent book. I found it very useful to explain the main motive to retrieve Grounded Theory methodology in order to do research.
