Well-organized and well-referenced, this book gives a clear presentation of heuristic methodology as a systematic form of qualitative research. Investigators of human experiences will find this book invaluable as a research guide. The author illustrates how heuristic concepts and processes form components of the research design and become the basis for a methodology. There is a clear explanation of how heuristic inquiry works in practice and the actual process of conducting a human science investigation is described in detail.

This is a clear and concise book, which not only provides the reader with the principles of Heuristics, but also their application. The significant proportion of the book concerns case studies and application of the theories, and this gives the reader a means of exploring the potential uses and benefits from differing human perspectives. Overall and easy to read and understand work, and very applicable to Counselling and Psychotherapy.
