   Saved my behind!
I am not a qualitative type-of-girl. I love my numbers, so that this was such a difficult change for me to make. This version of Merriam's qualitative research was to me a God-send. The head of the research department suggested I get it because my new study is basic qualitative and that was pure genius. This book breaks the process into simple, real English.
   Good introduction
The author seems to be one of the more quoted scholars on the subject of qualitative research in the education community. Qualitative research can be a difficult topic to grasp and some books on the subject can be quite dense. This book is fairly easy to read and provides a good introduction to the theme. If you want to learn qualitative research and you are in education, this book is a good addition to your library.
   Excellent source!
During my research, I have received little to no support on how to write a qualitative dissertation. And while I have collected and devoured many books, Merriam is my absolute favorite. There are many good qualitative sources, but often write in a convoluted manner, using different verbiage that actually means the same thing, without identifying this fact. So you spend a great deal of time making a road map of what the same words mean to different authors - frustrating for the novice.
   Excellent introductory "how to" for qualitative researchers
From Merriam's book, I gained a great deal. As I was writing a qualitative study for the first time, I often turned to this text during my first rounds of designing a proposed methodology. My only wish is that the text contained is that the templates and sample documents are included. There are some charts and lists discussed, but more complete samples of the polished qualitative instrument would help me visualize each tool more accurately. Overall, it is certainly worth the purchase.
   A truly easy read
I bought this book for a doctoral course and is one of two required courses. Because it bridges concepts and practice in such transferable language, it places the gap from the novice to knowledge.
   Great book for spelling it out
Merriam provides qualitative and up-to-the-point information on describing the various components within excellent research. She achieves this in a way that does not entangles you to tears for an already tedious process. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking a clear forward narrative on core elements and research approaches in the qualitative arena.
   A must for qualitative research
It details the philosophies behind qualitative research and outline some of the most popular qualitative research methods. It is great for the prospectus phase of a dissertation.
   Very Readable Book
I have used this book in my beg / fazal res class ''. I found it very convenient '', because it summarizes all the themes in a very readable way.
   smell wont leave
Used appeared goid condition, but had a scent i ciuldnt get rid of that was very potent i had to put it in the zip lock bag hoping it would diminish.
   Great Book
As a current doctoral student who is more interested in the qualitative method of research, this book provided impactful insights on research, themes, coding, analyzing and anonymity. The read was very simple to follow and this book will stay with me even after I have earned my degree.
