Review: "Qualitative Research Design: An Interactive Approach, Second Edition provides researchers and students a user-friendly, step-by-step guide to planning qualitative research. A bestseller in its first edition, this invaluable book presents an innovative approach to the components of design and how they interact with each other. The text presents a clear strategy for creating coherent and workable relationships among these design components and highlights key design issues. Based on a course the author taught for seven years at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the work is written in an informal, jargon-free style and incorporates many examples and hands-on exercises."--P.
