Carol Grbich is in the Faculty of Health Sciences, The Flinders University of South Australia.
As a pharmacy practitioner in the health arena of both practice and education, I would recommend the book as a learning and reference tool to colleagues who are new to qualitative health research. Grbich's comprehensive, open-minded overview of qualitative health research leaves the student with guidelines for success while plainly informing the researcher about the debates and issues that surround this research approach. - The Qualitative Report, September 2010
