Reviews

I have been engaged, as a teacher and researcher, with autoethnography for over a decade.
Reading this book has me wish that I had encountered it back at the start; perhaps I could have
bypassed much of the confusion I experienced about issues such as paradigm wars, research
genres, the place of the "I" in research inquiry and such like.
