Gives practical guidance on doing qualitative research studies along with thorough rationales for producing quality work at every step of the process from setting the research question to gathering data to reviewing literature to interpreting evidence to writing the report and more; uses excerpts from Stake's own work and that of his students as examples of what is discussed; a down-to-earth text, very readable, and one that constantly provokes thought.
