The place to write, read and discuss book reviews!

 

Each month we will be offering two copies of a SAGE book for review. So keep an eye out for those posts, added to the Comments Wall, and let us know if you would like to review the book.


Book reviews should be a minimum 500 words, and should be completed within 2 months of receipt of the book. Books will be allocated to reviewers on a first come first served basis (
If a reviewer has reviews outstanding they will be asked to submit that review before receiving any further review copies).

 
If you would like to post a book review, please post it as a new discussion in the forum.

SEPTEMBER’S BOOK FOR REVIEW

What is the first book you are going to read in the new academic year?

We thought you might enjoy two copies of Using Software in Qualitative Research by Christina Silver and Ann Lewins.

Using Software in Qualitative Research is an essential introduction to the practice and principles of Computer Assisted Qualitative Data AnalysiS (CAQDAS). The book will help you to choose the most appropriate package for your needs and get the most out of the software once you are using it.

We are changing the rules a bit, so we will select two names at random from all the members who make a request in the next 48 hours!

If you would like to review this book, just let me know via this wall and if selected, I will get in touch to ask for your details).

 

Best,

 

Lucia

Thanks Lucia, looking forward to it. Btw, July's book still hasn't arrived.

This month's reviewers will be Ibrahim and Clive (you have been successful in the draw!) As you are loyal reviewers, I have both of your addresses on record and will send the books shortly.

Nadia- I am sure luck will favour your next time! Meanwhile, I am looking forward to all these exciting reviews you are working on.

Well, if we have no other takers throughout the weekend, I might have to draw a name out of a hat!
