3rd Edition - Still needs editing March 23 2008
By M. Wolfenstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The bottom line with this book is that, while it delivers the goods in terms of an introduction to grounded theory, it's poorly written for a 3rd edition. By the time a text book is in its third version it should be tight, and I'm afraid this book just isn't. Structurally the book is basically fine, but I found myself mentally editing various sentences and paragraphs as I read it because it simply wasn't written very well. This is particularly annoying for a pair of respected qualitative researchers, seeing as language is the stock and trade of qualitative work.

Additionally, I felt like it was a little terminology heavy for terms that are not universally accepted as common language for discussing qualitative research, but I'm more forgiving in this latter regard. We are generally a bit challenged in the field when it comes to common language, and there remains a residual need to demarcate one's academic territory.

Three stars . . . it could have earned 4 with better writing/editing.

Valuable ethnographic research (grounded theory) methods text book April 3 2011
By limnos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a UBC Okanagan graduate student working on an interdisciplinary MA focused on water governance. This term during an ethnographic methods course I was introduced to Corbin and Stuass's 'Basics of qualitative research 3e' and the software MAXQDA10. I purchased the book online during class.

This book provides a novice ethnographic researcher with valuable insights into the methods and context required to support grounded theory work. This text will serve social science researchers well; especially anthropology majors interested in applying the principles of grounded theory to support and context one's methods work. This book also provides a good overview and helpful hints for using using coding software MAXQDA10 - which is another helpful, and reasonably priced analytical tool for graduate researchers.

I would highly recommend this book to any aspiring ethnographer.

Really Helpful explanations for a amateur researcher July 5 2013
By joebetta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a grad student and was desperately looking for a book to help me learn how to use grounded theory for my data. Buying this book was probably the best decision I could have made. Very clear explanations and helpful examples provided by Corbin.

content review Aug. 7 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book offers a basic description of what a qualitative study is all about - it gives step by step guidance even a new researcher student will not find any problem in understanding. The language used is simple and very comfortable for reading.
Great resource Jan. 12 2013

This is a great book. If you are doing anything other than generic or basic research-buy it. If you are doing generic or basic research, it may not help as much as you would like.
