"The strengths of this book are many. Of particular note is the first chapter, in which Miller and Crabtree present a road map or research methods. They identify five styles of inquiry, ranging from experimental to philosophic, based on the focus and intent of the research. In further evaluation, they then match research aims and analysis objectives with these styles. This clear and succinct discussion not only helps put the various research styles in perspective but also helps one to see the relationship between the aim of the research, analysis objectives, research question(s), and style. . . ."
