Product description


'This is one of the most clearly written and engaging books for the beginning researcher I have encountered. It is a practical, no-nonsense and encouraging book as well.' - Elizabeth Watson, Senior Lecturer, School of Social Sciences, University of Western Sydney, Australia 'This is an excellent book which will capture the enthusiasm and interest of the students it is aimed at.' - Professor David Shemmings, Middlesex University, UK '...anyone carrying out research for a project... and turning the results of that research into a report would benefit from this guide.' - Oxfam Development Resource Review 'The book is readable and accessible; paragraphs of information are interspersed with examples from students' projects and warnings of pitfalls...Doing a successful research project takes the reader through all aspects of research. The emphasis is on rigour, but the author is cheerfuly emphatic about keeping life simple.' Sara Perren, Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
