The second edition of this text is most welcome. The new chapter on selecting your review methods is excellent, readable and scholarly. There is more practical guidance on rapid reviews and integrating qualitative and quantitative data, which will be of great assistance to students and researchers alike. The new content on review tools and more highly developed secondary data research such as concept analysis are great additions. -- Sue Schutz Systematic reviews of literature are a crucial step of evidence-based practice, and this book establishes the benchmark on how to undertake this process. It provides a wonderful description on how to locate and critically analyse all relevant prior work, published and unpublished, in as unbiased manner as possible. This is the best book I have read on the topic and it is most highly recommended. -- Bruce A. Thyer
