[The authors] provide a functional discussion of multiple topics related to interviewing in their book...However, [they] present more than just a useful discussion of how to design, conduct, and analyze interviews. They simultaneously introduce the importance of philosophical approaches and ethics in relation to the topics discussed, making connections between the important notions and the qualitative research process they describe. Their practical approach to the topics presented makes their book a wonderful resource for novice researchersThe Weekly Qualitative Report
This book is an essential reading for every qualitative researcher using interviews. The authors present real life examples which bring the subject to life. It is written in a way which is easy to understand. I especially love the practical tips that the authors provide for conducting qualitative interviews.
This book provides valuable information for students not only in social sciences but can be utilised by students from any discipline to aid them in conducting qualitative research. The book also provides good direction in developing qualitative interviews which is of particular importance to tourism students
An excellent resource for students; clear and easy to follow. Lots of good guidance on how to construct, conduct and analyse differing types of interviews in qualitative research.
I like the way to book is set up, I think it is easy to read. However, in my course it is more important for students to learn how to do interviews with experts, lobbyists, politicians etc. So I decided to use different literature for that purpose.
This is an extremely informative book for students in the social sciences. When read in conjunction with Steiner Kvale's book the two provide students with a wide range of material pertaining to interview processes, from ethics, philosophical assumptions, designing the interview and reflexivity. There's a full chapter on interviews and phenomenological research which is probably more useful for PG rather than UG students. Overall I can highly recommend this book
This text book provides extremely useful guidance for students wishing to utilise interviews in their data collection.
Too specific for a course on qualitative research methods
A good introduction to interviewing
For those students who want to conduct qualitative research using interviews, I will recommend this reading as it provide clear guidelines and lessons learned to develop interview schemes and analyze the data.
A very useful and instightful book
A very useful book, including many practical and theoretical angles.
Many of my MA HRM/D students choose to conduct interviews in their research projects, involving the completion of a 60 credit original piece of research. This text provides students with an in-depth understanding of how to get the best out of the interviewing process.
This is a superb book on interviews and should feature in any list of references in qualitative research. Both the philosophical and practical aspects of using interviews in research are analysed in depth. The chapters on interview data analysis, and on interviews in phenomenological and narrative research are excellent and set this book apart from other books in the field. A must read in any graduate course in research methodologies.
A mix of practical and theoretical considerations. An excellent text
The text has been added to the main reading list as a useful text for students adopting interviews in their research.
Very useful for a range of issues around qualitative research and not just interviewing.
Very readable and accessible text book.
In-depth information on the topic
Very good, well written and practical. Will be essential reading for those who are to engage in qualitative interviewing as part of their research.
