Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent resource outlining the research process from start to finish. I've used it for organizational review type case studies, and had been concerned that it may be too academic. However, those concerns were unfounded- it provides useful examples and questions throughout the book that make it much more approachable. I have found it cited in many other texts and articles, it really seems to be the best of it's type.

If you are working on a case study, then this book is helpful. But it is expensive and very dry reading.

Excellent book, Kindle edition is not very good June 16 2011
By Maev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Overall, if I were reading the physical copy of this book I would have rated it with 5 stars. It is well written, clearly explained, and theoretically sound. However, I purchased the Kindle edition. Although I am still receiving some value, there are a large number of issues with the scanning or transcription of this book. One example is this passage: "Within each of have peculiar of case studies, Szanton has illustrated the principle of literal replication." Even with the context around this sentence to provide clues, I don't have a clue what that sentence is saying! This is unfortunately one of MANY such issues with the Kindle edition of this book. So, the book itself is still providing value, but at the expense of having to interpret a large number of unreadable passages like that one, and in some cases, at the expense of being able to discern what the author was saying.

Clear, many examples, easy to read Dec 6 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a doctoral student, I purchased this book when a research professor at my university recommended it. I can see why! Since I am considering using the case study process for my dissertation research, this book helped me visualize how it might work. Yin filled the book with cogent examples from many fields, with references to find the original study. These examples were both relatively current and from decades past; this range of times helped me see the growth in the case study process and its breadth of applicability.

The book is not a follow-the-numbers process by any means, no cookie-cutter here. Instead, it contains a structured process from beginning to end, including analysis and reporting. Along the way, Yin forces the reader to ask questions and consider the applicability of the case study approach to one's own work.

All in all, very helpful and no doubt, it will be a reference for me in years to come.

Best Yin yet! June 3 2009
By Michael D. OByrne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an expansion on Robert Yin's previous case study methodology textbooks and it included updated research and increased focus on the theoretical grounding of the methodology. Those who are looking for a detailing of the rationale for using case study will find it here.

Must have for Case Study Researchers July 2 2009
By T. Warner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are doing any kind of case study research and do not have this book, you need this. Dr. Yin is a leader in case study research and has valuable information regarding components to a dissertation that are unique to case studies.

Excellent book, Kindle edition is horribly edited Oct. 12 2011
By Jeffrey DiScala - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It seems a shame to rate a book based on its presentation and not its content, but in this case, the presentation was very much an obstacle to getting to the content. Yin's work on case study research is invaluable. Unfortunately, I found it very difficult to read. In the Kindle edition, errors are nearly constant. They are abysmal in the example boxes and exercises. There are words missing, sentences and phrases duplicated or cut off, and easy-to-fix typing errors everywhere. I found my reading experience halted and entirely too frustrating. I really enjoy using my Kindle, but not under such conditions. I don't know if it's Amazon or Sage, but it needs to be fixed.
