Measure Twice and Cut Once: A Review of Clark and Creswell’s Mixed Methods Reader
The Qualitative Report
  • Steven R. Terrell, Nova Southeastern University
The Mixed Methods Reader is an edited book that presents the reader with a synthesized introduction to the philosophy, history, methodology and practice of mixed methods research. The first section presents the reader with a series of 14 foundational articles, with a second section presenting nine carefully chosen exemplar articles demonstrating best practices in the field. The editors did a remarkable job in combining theory and application with the inclusion of a framework throughout the text which includes discussion questions, visual diagrams and introductory comments for each article. This creates a synthesis and ease of use that guarantees this text to be a classic for years to come.
