'Keith Richards' book on qualitative methods is truly excellent. The
writing is unusually clear, engaging, and carefully
crafted... Instructors of graduate-level courses on research methods
will find the three-level system of the book of remarkable pedagogical
value and the Reading Guides at the end of each chapter extremely
useful and rich... I have no doubt this textbook will become a best
