Now I feel that this research is going to be really di Very good book which clarifies the aims and use of case study research in a simple understandable language. I have a quite a few sound reasons for the 5 star rating.
With the help of Yin and some example books that he recommended, possibly, you will know how to do research. Second, is the writing of the text based on sound research? This book, in my opinion, is one of the most practical, useful books on the topic of case study design.
Or it is bad.
To make matters worse, I see the term "case study" thrown around like crazy in this internet world, suggesting that it really is a method that anyone can do.

They know how to research and it is very possible for them to explain and convey the essence of how to do.
After all he is hard-working and he also conducts studies in the area of education. In the first place, I must admit that I am a slow reader.
Another thing I took from the book is the usefulness of a pilot study. Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches J.
Across that book, he recommended many books and articles of empirical research.
The book is succinct, highly readable, and well-written. If you choose a methodology text based on the number of citations, you might be tricked. If the writing is based on empirical studies, it is more possible for the book be successful than those based mainly on explanation, theories, and book chapters without empirical studies.
Yin addresses the criticisms of case studies head on and attends to them in a very clear way. I should say his book is good even for those who does not prefer this method.
Triangulation - quite useful for my research. Now I feel that this research is going to be really difficult If the author is not a real researcher, how could he write a reasonable book to help you understand how to research?
