Research Design: Qualitative, Quantitative, and Mixed Methods Approaches
The Bestselling Text is Completely Updated and Better than Ever!
The Third Edition of the bestselling text Research Design by John W. Creswell enables readers to compare three approaches to research—qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods—in a single research methods text. The book presents these three approaches side by side within the context of the process of research from the beginning steps of philosophical assumptions to the writing and presenting of research. Written in a user-friendly manner, Creswell's text does not rely on technical jargon. He cuts to the core of what a reader needs to know to read and design research in part by showcasing ideas in a scaffold approach so that the reader understands ideas from the simple to the complex.

Extremely helpful for understanding, executing, and writing research/dissertations. However, I did glaze over a few times towards the end as it the author seems to state the obvious and became a little repetitive. Read full review

This is another of the primary textbooks I use in my research methods class and it is a decent supplement to Alan Bryman's book, Social Research Methods. Read full review
