?Cathy Riessman is the leading figure in narrative research and her new book is a delight. Covering basic issues of transcription and research credibility as well as visual data and engagingly written, it is a goldmine for students and researchers alike. If we want to make narrative research serious and revealing, it is to this book that we should turn.?                      
-David Silverman, Professor Emeritus, Goldsmiths' College, University of London

"Narrative Methods for the Human Sciences provides an accessible framework for researchers - to analyse narrative texts with confidence, empathy, and humility.
-NARRATIVE INQUIRY

?This is a terrific book. Cathy Riessman has an encyclopedic knowledge of this field and of the participants in it. This breadth and depth of knowledge is abundantly clear throughout the book.?
-Susan Bell, Bowdoin College

?This book has been a great source of inspiration to me and my students, not only for its methodological clarity, but also for the spirit of social activism it engenders.?
-Ian Baptiste, The Pennsylvania State University

"Narrative Methods for the Human Sciences is an essential starting point for both students and experienced researchers interested in using narrative analysis in applied or other contexts. Written with admirable clarity, an engaging style, and supported by detailed examples of analysis, the book outlines the main methodological issues and approaches within the exciting and fast-developing field of narrative research. Even researchers already familiar with narrative methods should find the presentation of thematic, structural, dialogic/performance, and visual forms of analysis a fruitful stimulus to new research endeavours.?
-Brian Roberts, University of Central Lancashire, U.K.

Review

Narrative Methods for the Human Sciences provides an accessible framework for researchers - to analyse narrative texts with confidence, empathy, and humility. -- Ron Adams Narrative Inquiry 20081020 "Narrative Methods for the Human Sciences is a well-written, profoundly useful guide to four of the main narrative methods: (a) oral narratives derived from interviews; (b) narratives derived from archival materials such as diaries, letters, and other documents; (c) ethnographic observations as compiled from field notes; and (d) visual media (in combination with text or not) such as videotaped interactions, paintings, and photographs. Not only is she practical and thoughtful about types of narratives, but even more important are the insights that she provides about the alternative methods of transforming narrative materials into published works. [...T]his excellent work will be indispensible for teachers of graduate courses in narrative and other qualitative methods and for research teams wanting to do first-rate narrative research." -- Keith E. Davis 20090213
