Throughout the text, the author provides thoughtful insights and guidelines on the cases and the different approaches to doing case study research.

This anthology is very useful. It speaks directly to students. The writing is extraordinarily strong throughout the samplesclear and concise, interesting and insightful, authoritative and accessible. This is a book I will order with enthusiasm as required reading in my course on research design.
Every case in the Anthology is worth reading.
