“This text is one of the most superior texts that I have come across in Mixed Methods Research. This is a gem of a book and a must have for any serious-minded researcher.”
“This book provides the clarity of a proven design approach, so common mistakes or more often oversights don’t happen.”
“The book can serve as a reference for my students’ dissertation writing. Also, from teaching point of view, the book also provides good activities for the instructors to use in their instructions.”
We have all waited a long time for a good book on developing a mixed methods proposal. DeCuir-Gunby and Schutz have delivered this book to us. They write in clear, straight-forward language, they include the latest advances in mixed methods, they incorporate activities, further readings, and sample sessions illustrating the use of each chapter's content. I especially liked the ‘real-world’ sample proposal at the end on racial microaggressions. I will encourage workshop participants and students to study this chapter closely. This is a must-read book in the field of mixed methods.
Well structured book which gets to the heart of its subject matter.
Easy to read, and additional thinking points should catalyse the student reader's imagination.
