In The Press

This book is a very user-friendly and theoretically robust guide that will prove invaluable to researchers and students alike.  I particularly like the breadth and depth with which all dimensions of the research process  are  addressed and explained. The new material on questionnaire and surveys will be of great benefit and is a major strength of the new edition.
