Pat Bazeley's book is suitable for both novice and experienced researchers who are serious about undertaking rigorous qualitative analysis. It succeeds in balancing academic considerations with the practicalities of doing qualitative data analysis. The entire text is prescribed reading for all my senior students who are tackling qualitative research. -- Jacques de Wet
If you are new to qualitative research and interested in developing theory at doctoral level, this book is a useful resource for demystifying theory development. As a Phenomenologist, I found the phenomenology sections are written in accessible language. A valuable guide covering the basics, including naming codes and understanding thick descriptions. -- Efe Imiren
For many students and emerging scholars new to qualitative research, the analysis of qualitative research data remains a mysterious process. This book is an indispensable guide in opening up this 'black box' of qualitative research. Pat Bazeley shows the qualitative data analysis process in action: not a technical and highly procedural undertaking, but an interpretative act that requires as much systematicity as it requires creativity, imagination and thinking. -- Mathias Decuypere
