Product description

Review

"This thorough but inexpensive book is foundational for understanding the research process from beginning to end, and the appendix lists sources for disciplinary-specific guidance that might be improved by including literature on particular research methods."-- "Choice"

"What sets The Craft of Research apart from these other resources is that it teaches the reader how to think deeply about research in a more general sense. . . . The ample, updated examples of present-day research propositions used to illustrate such thought exercises help to keep the approach fresh and contemporary for a new generation of readers. Information professionals and experienced researchers will especially appreciate the expanded and updated sections on how to find resources in today's information-rich, digital environment."-- "Reference Reviews"

"A well-constructed, articulate reminder of how important fundamental questions of style and approach, such as clarity and precision, are to all research."--Praise for previous edition "Times Literary Supplement"

"Accessible, readable and jargon-free. . . . The Craft of Research pays close attention to readers' needs and anxieties."--Praise for previous edition "Teaching in Higher Education"

"For those writers in search of solid research to fuel their writing, this well-structured, accessible and affordable book is a gem."--Praise for previous edition "Writer"

"I recommend it to my students . . . and keep a copy close at hand as the first option offered to students who ask, 'Just how should I begin my research?'"--Praise for previous edition "Business Library Review"
