Abstract

Action Research Essentials by Dorothy Valcarcel Craig (2009) is an excellent resource for the emerging researcher; especially doctoral students in their first year of studies. Craig is successful in providing the reader with the essentials of action research while also addressing common challenges; one baby step at a time. In this review I will first explain the process of selecting and conducting the first reading of the book followed by identifying the author’s objectives and intent. Then, I present a brief description of each chapter and note how their content relates to struggling research students' common challenges of the . I then put forth a quantitative description of one of the major strengths of the book, followed by online resources associated with each chapter.
