Abstract [en]

a participant and interacting with them. The chapters on data handling and coding and data analysis are informative about how to think about the analysis as well as how to carry it out. Following this, the chapter on data interpretation pulls the book around malmost full circle, as the different approaches re-emerge as topics, and the process is shown to be coherent and complete. The final section, ‘Writing about the research’ develops ideas about the presentation of the research, the story that will be told. All the chapters in the book are helpfully self-referential, so if an idea emerges in one that is dealt with in great depth in another a link is made. This produces a conceptual web, and reading the book becomes an exploration of thoughts and ideas across the different chapters, epistemologies and paradigms. Qualitative Research: The Essential Guide to Theory and Practice makes a big claim in its title. Whether it is he essential guide I cannot say, but it is definitely the textbook I will be directing my undergraduate and postgraduate research students towards when they are looking for answers to the difficult questions every researcher encounters.
