Saldana's Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers has become an indispensable resource for my teaching, my doctoral students, and my own research. The 3rd edition, with new approaches and new examples from a broad array of researchers and disciplines, will be even more indispensable.-- Steven Harvey
The Coding Manual is the go-to handbook for all qualitative researchers. This latest edition offers a thorough discussion on analyzing visual data and writing analytic memos, making this the most comprehensive text on the coding process.-- Jennifer Roberts
