This is a 'must have' book for aspiring qualitative researchers in the field of sport and physical activity. The book is well structured, providing the researcher with a step-by-step guide to the processes that need to occur to undertake methodologically sound qualitative research. It is intellectual and yet pragmatic which makes this a book that I will recommend to my PhD students and colleagues alike.

This book, whilst fairly basic, gives a good overview of qualitative research methods for sport and exercise. This works very well for this introductory research methods module.
This text provides all the relevant details our students will need when planning their research projects. The ethical considerations will be a must for them as it sets out the project in small concise steps.
wonderful book. Focuses on an interesting angles
A useful text that provides learners with relevant information when starting a research project. Further reading would be recommended to explore factors in greater depth. However much of the content is subject specific allowing readers to apply to there own research project.
Very useful book.
Split in to easily manageable sections.
The students comment it helps them in their assignments.
I have given this book as good overview on Qualitative research methods for students during their independent studies. It allows them to consider the type of methods available to them when making decisions on their research methodology.
I would recommend this text to students searching for a comprehensive overview of appropriate techniques to qualitative research from all levels of degree study. Especially useful for independent projects, a good read.
Really interesting, clear and structured nicely. Will be informing the library to acquire a copy.
This is a useful text in addition to other Research Methods texts. Offers expertise and good views on Qualitative Research as well as providing learners with an alternative angle from which to understand the topic. Excellent to use for further reading due to the plethora of references throughout the text.
An excellent overview of the qualitative techniques available to allow a critical justification for undergraduate and post graduate methodology.
This book provides an overview of the key qualitative methods that are traditionally used and also provides some excellent examples of published research from a range of sport and exercise sciences.
Very useful book, a good overview of various methodologies and research design.
Very comprehensive with coverage of major qualitative methods to facilitate deeper lines of enquiry
This book is excellent in places. Recommended to students who embark on some of the lesser used methods in flexible design approaches to undergraduate research in sport studies.
This is a welcome addition to the research methods literature in that if offers a sporting perspective to qualitative methods. From my experience, sports students struggle to appreciate the nuances involved in qualitative research and this text provides a useful guide for undergraduates.
Really liked content of book. Good range and very useful for many sections of modules that will be covered with undergraduate students
A great book to social worker that research sport as a social inclusion field.
A useful addition to any library, this text offers insight to a range of qualitatve methods and is written in a style which many undergraduate students are likely to find accessible. Definitely a recommended text for any sport science/physical education programme.
This text provides a great introduction to qualitative research within the field of sport and exercise. It covers each stage of the research process while incorporating relevant examples throughout. Each chapter is well structured and easy for students to follow.
