Review: Tom Wengraf (2001). Qualitative Research Interviewing: Biographic Narrative and Semi-Structured Method

Mike Wrigley


This is a book for the discerning qualitative researcher, interested in a thorough grounding in qualitative research interviewing. WENGRAF has written a superlative, well-constructed text, which qualitative researchers have been waiting for. It focuses on the minutiae of preparing for, undertaking, and analysing interviews and interview texts. Despite the minor problems concerning the possible use of CAQDAS software and the potential readability problems with the use of acronyms throughout the book, WENGRAF has produced a piece of work which will serve as a bible for everyone concerned with qualitative research interviewing.
