"This kit will provide the reader with a systematic and readable approach to the design, implementation, and analysis of focus group data. The material is presented to help the novice learn how to actually conduct a focus group while at the same time enables those more experienced with focus groups to check their own performance against best practice. These materials will be the benchmark against which the practice of focus groups should be judged."
--Ray C. Rist, The World Bank, Washington, DC
"The Focus Group Kit is a non pareil work. Its straightforward, common-sense approach is represented with such eloquent language. It is a real joy to read. It was refreshing to find more than I anticipated in its pages. Dick Krueger, etal. have a talent for capturing the essence of what we all need to do to conduct outstanding focus group research. For me this kit gave new meaning to the process."
