I recommend it as a life-long research investment. Feb 14, abatage rated it did not like it Shelves: However, the content is all good - it's just everything else that lets it down.
Although, it's not hard to get the content right, even when you ignore the fact that all the case studies could have been truncated a little and there were too many pages upon pages of examples whenever a certain theory was up for explanation. This over-use of examples could be avoided if the language of delivery was a bit clearer and easier to digest. You know when you sit down to read a chap Horrible, horrible text. You know when you sit down to read a chapter and after a few pages you feel like you've been sitting there for a long time?
With this book, that's an accurate description of how dry and thick the chapters can be. Sure the author has done their research no pun intended and certainly shows that they know a whole lot about different frameworks, theories, methodologies, what have you - but there's little thought given to how that information is best related to someone who has never approached the subject before.
