  • By Mr. Michael J. Wisbey on 9 April 2016

    Very well written and comprehensive text, set book for my MSc. Good indexing and glossary.

  • By Frey on 11 January 2017

    Used for multiple courses at University as research methods come up multiple times. Worth the money - explanations are thorough.

  • By Spooner on 11 January 2017

    The first chapter or two were difficult for me, however reading further, the book became clear and easy to understand. Helped me with my module and will keep the book for future reference.

    Very Good!

  • By Andrew P. Hatch on 21 April 2015

    No complaints. The book was actually in a better condition than I expected according to the description. It just took longer to arrive than I expected. Nearly two weeks. I have been spoiled with past purchases normally arriving in less than a week.
