    Praise for the Third Edition:

    “Writing up Qualitative Research has CHIME – compassion, humor, intelligence, mindfulness of humanity, and empirical evidence. Wolcott’s empathic compassion is a major strength. The content of every chapter shows that Wolcott has fel and grappled with all the same anxieties and fears of writers at every level.”
    —Sonja Peterson-Lewis, Temple University

    “His style is good, down to earth, and easy to understand for both undergraduate and graduate.”
    —Joseph Wronka, Springfield College

    “The Wolcott text is much more reader-friendly and writer-friendly. It offer remarkable support for the writing process, compared to traditional texts.”
    —Judy K. C. Bentley, SUNY at Cortland

    “The conversational style makes the book inviting and accessible. It is comprehensive, addressing the various aspects of writing ranging from setting up to where to write to get published. It teaches and motivates with being didactic or arrogant.”
    —Pat Maslin-Ostrowski, Florida Atlantic University
