Synopsis:

Creswell's Research Design is an accessible and useful book that stimulates students through walk through experiences, use of exercises, and production of actual writing samples. It is a book that models the types of issues that best suit different approaches and allows students to understand when to use mixed methods. Furthermore, its focus on theory and paradigms is done in a way that helps students decode their meaning.

--MARTHA MONTERO-SIEBURTH, University of Massachusetts, Boston

One of the most formidable challenges of research design is stating your purpose. Creswell's approach takes the guesswork out of the process.

--STEVE GUERRIERO, Organization & Management, Antioch New England Graduate School
