Kathy Charmaz’s new edition of her classic text on developing grounded theory is an invaluable resource for qualitative and mixed methods scholars. Her formulation of grounded theory analysis is remarkable for its eclectic synthesis of what have been contentious approaches and for its clear connections to the variety of qualitative data analysis methods. I have used Dr. Charmaz’s work to teach both general induction and specifically grounded theory methods. The emphasis on research thinking and decision making, the explicit discussion of theories we start with and theories we build, and the extensive variety of examples in the second edition enrich our understanding of what we are doing when we do research. The book is an indispensable part of a qualitative research library.
This is a powerful, richly nuanced, evocative work. It is masterfully grounded in the grounded theory strategies and practices of established scholars. It represents a stunning and brilliantly innovative intervention. It provides ground zero - the starting place for the next generation of social science scholars. A major accomplishment.
This is an excellent book. It is easy to read, gives lots of practical advice and is quite profound. If you are serious about studying the conceptual universes and the interior worlds of research participants in a way which recognises that the researcher is intimately involved in the construction and analysis of data, this is a book which will make you re-think how you conduct research.
Kathy Charmaz was Professor Emerita of Sociology and the former director of the Faculty Writing Program at Sonoma State University.

She wrote in the areas of social psychology, medical sociology, qualitative methods, and grounded theory, and over her career wrote, coauthored, or coedited 14 books, including two award-winning works: Good Days, Bad Days; The Self in Illness and Time, and Constructing Grounded Theory.
She received the George Herbert Mead award for lifetime achievement from the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction, the Leo G. Reeder award for distinguished contributions from the Medical Sociology Section of the American Sociological Association and the Lifetime Achievement award from the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry. Professor Charmaz also gave workshops on qualitative methods, grounded theory, symbolic interactionism, and scholarly writing around the globe.
