This book fills a major gap in qualitative research methods courses. Saldana has accomplished what has not been done before - creating a text that clearly identifies the many choices one has in coding their data. I wish I had this book when I started conducting qualitative research. It should be required reading for all. Mark Winton University of Central Florida <hr color= GBP666666 size= 1px /> An excellent handbook that helps demystify the coding process with a comprehensive assessment of different coding types, examples and exercises. As such it is a valuable teaching resource and it will also be of use to anyone undertaking qualitative analysis. Kevin Meethan Plymouth University <hr color= GBP666666 size= 1px /> The Coding Manual describes the qualitative coding process with clarity and expertise. Its wide array of strategies, from the more straightforward to the more complex, are skilfully explained and exemplified. This extremely usable manual is a must-have resource for qualitative researchers at all levels. Tara M. Brown Brandeis University
