This book is a guide to ways of conducting and writing qualitative research projects through complex teams and lone research undertakings. The text is grounded in Davidson’s experience as a qualitative researcher and writer, as well as her experience working with complex research teams. With an emphasis on the value of writing in qualitative research, Davidson describes issues of research design, methodological writing, documenting research findings, and implications regarding complex research teams. The book is written in a motivating orientation using a mixture of both a formal and conversational tone. Davidson triangulates this narrative text and builds reliability through personal experiences as a qualitative researcher on complex, small, and lone projects; working with her own students’ qualitative projects; real life field stories as examples; detailed append ices to support her content; and references from her own publications. This book is appropriate for anyone engaged with qualitative inquiry with a beginner researcher considered as well.
