Nothing really earth-shattering. Not really anything new. ( )
  VincentDarlage | Jan 30, 2015 |
A great book for those beggining to write a PhD proposal. It talks about the different types of knowledge claims and the typical research methods associated with them. It also offers very specific advice and even templates for content for different sections of the proposal such as the Introduction and Objectives sections. I found it a very practical book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761924426, Paperback)

"Creswell's Research Design is an accessible and useful book that stimulates students through walk through experiences, use of exercises, and production of actual writing samples. It is a book that models the types of issues that best suit different approaches and allows students to understand when to use mixed methods. Furthermore, its focus on theory and paradigms is done in a way that helps students decode their meaning."

--MARTHA MONTERO-SIEBURTH, University of Massachusetts, Boston

"One of the most formidable challenges of research design is stating your purpose. Creswell's approach takes the guesswork out of the process."

--STEVE GUERRIERO, Organization & Management, Antioch New England Graduate School
