Getting it together

This book is brilliant. However, for the level at which this course is taught this book won't be directly recommended. Nevertheless, various sections will be referred to during the course of the programme delivery.

Designed from the outset to be an overview of NVivo qualitative computing software it succeeds admirably. Lyn Richards has done a remarkable job using plain language clear examples to explain how a researcher could use the suggested methods and approaches to obtain their required qualitative research goals.

The demonstration software CD that is included with the book allows the reader to make full use of the examples given by the author within their relevant chapters, and to thereby explore the accompanying tutorials to their maximum.

Lyn Richards is a Research Professor of Qualitative Methodology and this is evident throughout her book, which is not only a practical handbook but also an invaluable resource book for qualitative research of all kinds including tips on designing, starting and managing a project.
