This book is an absolute treat. Its engaging style, its comprehensive content, its clear logic, its brilliant use of examples and above all its enormous value to qualitative researchers of all stripes add up to me wishing it had been available years ago! -- Jo Brewis A pleasantly readable and remarkably helpful guide that offers as much to experienced researchers as it does to novices. It clearly presents the "how's" of narrative, content and discourse analysis while simultaneously dealing so thoughtfully with the "why's" of these approaches. -- Dorothy Pawluch This is a marvelous book. Qualitative social scientists analyzing "talk data" will benefit immensely from the astute discussion of discourse, narrative, and conversational analysis strategies. So too will quantitative researchers seeking a clear overview of this expanding methodological field. -- Harvey Krahn The authors are attentive to all aspects of the interview, and identify a generally unaddressed and possibly major flaw of the qualitative method by discussing how memories are altered in retrospect and collective, not just individual, in character -- Ivonne Kusters
