Book Overview

This bestselling book focuses on case study design and analysis as a distinct research tool with wide applicability. It has now been carefully revised, updated and expanded to include: a discussion of the debate in evaluation between qualitative and quantitative research; more on the role of theory in doing good case studies; more extensive discussion of triangulation as a rationale for multiple sources of evidence; and an examination of program logic...

A must-read book on case research

If you only read one book about case research, here it is. This book has become a classic for any academic interested in case research. It comes with a second volume which covers the application of the theory.

Case Study Research - authoritative work

I needed to determine if case study research was for me. I'm in the process of selecting my dissertation methodology. If you only read one work regarding case study research this should be it. Yin is probably cited more frequently than any other author in the field. This work really covers the waterfront and can serve as a guidebook to one wishing to engage in case study research.

Excellent work on case study methodology

This book is perhaps the prime book for those conducting case studies for qualitative research in the social sciences. People have developed PhD methodology entirely based on the contents of this book. The third edition contains updated material and up-to-date citations and case study examples. I would recommend this very highly to anyone using case studies in graduate-level social science research.

A must read for scientists, under- or graduate students

Read it to prepare for my master's thesis and probably will use it for my doctoral thesis as well. Brings the detailed methodology for case study research in perfectly synchronized chapters. Extremely valuable information! Sometimes even Mr. Yin has so many info to provide he has some difficulty putting it all together, but after all everything makes a lot of sense. Has dozens of very good examples. I am purchasing "Applications of case study research" (the "sequel") because I was really satisfied for what I got in reading Case Study Reasearch (3rd ed).

A complete and detailed guide for conducting case studies

This book offers a very complete and detailed guide into conducting case study research, which is not only useful for researchers in social sciences, but also for business research. It is virtually the only book on case study research at this level and practically helps researchers that are planning to conduct case study research to avoid the pitfalls that are luring for this complex and difficult research strategy/design and which pitfalls have made the case study approach not so popular in the academic community that deals with business research.
