'Discussion of the impact on the researcher of carrying out sensitive research has been muted. This volume certainly fills the void and is one which I would recommend to all researchers about to embark on a qualitative project - whether the subject is of an overtly 'sensitive' nature or not. ... an extensively referenced, enjoyable, engaging and informative text and should be on the bookshelves of all qualitative researchers - and, especially, supervisors.' Sociology of Health & Illness
