A recommended book for the novice researcher especially those considering employing an interpretive phenomenological approach.
A little bit too specialized for my audience, though I am impressed with the work
a useful book for postgraduate research students pursuing qualitatiev research projects in psychology
I thought this book was well-written, insightful and thought-provoking. I note however that it is written as a challenge to the dominant positivist approach to psychological research, rather than as a 'handbook' for conducting qualitative research. In my experience, newcomers to qualitative methods struggle with constructivist thinking. For this reason, I will suggest this text as supplementary reading for students interested in exploring the epistemological spectrum of qualitative methodology, or interested in the qualitative methods covered in the book (e.g. Grounded Theory, IPA).
