Recenzii

"Throughout, the guidance remains very practical, keeping clearly in sight the goal of actually getting the writing task done. The style is friendly, chatty and humorous, resulting in a guidebook that is accessible and a pleasure to read. I would highly recommend this book to anyone whose work involves writing up qualitative research, not only if you encounter particular struggles, but also if you just appreciate some words of reassurance or encouragement from time to time."
"Wolcott’s advice is highly individual, and much of it involves strategies for finding the techniques for writing and editing that best fit you as a writer. Wolcott explains his points in a friendly and accessible manner, which makes the book feel like a lively conversation with a colleague rather than an academic treatise on writing. Writing Up Qualitative Research is a valuable resource for academic writers at any stage of their careers. Graduate students will find the discussion of breaking out of the prescribed formulas of the dissertation genre very helpful. New academics will enjoy the advice for keeping writing relevant to the audience, as well as the chapters on negotiating the publication process. Even seasoned academic writers will not go away from Wolcott’s book empty-handed, because it contains advice for guiding new writers and graduate students. Writing Up Qualitative Research is an enjoyable, refreshing, and useful monograph, and I know I will be using it for advice and inspiration for years to come."
