Review "The go-to text for mixed methods research." -- Regardt Ferreira "Creswell and Plano Clark have captured recent changes within mixed methods research, and these are reflected in this dynamic, salient book!" -- Susan Sweat Gunby "An excellent guide for the design and conduct of mixed methods research!" -- Mansoo Yu "Readers of the book will understand the expanding breadth of multiple methods, the value of complex methods for sophisticated analysis of problems, and how to use and evaluate mixed methods in research." -- Joseph Drew "This updated edition provides thoughtful consideration to how the field of mixed methods research has changed, including how the authors′ own definitions and typologies have refined. It also provides a discussion of a diverse array of empirical studies from prominent and emerging mixed methods scholars, highlighting the strength and potential of this field for social and behavioral sciences." -- Peggy Shannon-Baker "Creswell and Plano Clark do excellent work in showing the evolution of mixed-methods research. One of the highlights of this edition is the addition of scaffolds that guide writing sections of a mixed-methods study." -- Senay Purzer "Narrowing down the research methods to three primary types and then providing application methods and basic step-by-step instructions, along with great resources in the appendix and outside contributions, makes this a must have book in any academic study leading to research development." -- Natalie Ellis About the Author John W.
