    This was a required text for one of my graduate Professional Communication classes. If I lost it, I would have to buy another one because it's that good. And these text books are expensive. My professors have entire libraries at their disposal, and they chose this particular book for one of their courses.'nuff said.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful guide
    Although I've written many research papers, I found this book to be a great guide to help me 'fill in' the missing pieces in my work.It provides useful guidelines in all phases of research writing, from picking the right topic to statistical techniques.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Practical Research Book Review
    Great book, it is very easy to follow and understand.It provides great samples and guides on how to do a research paper. I certainly would recommend it to anyone that needs help or guidance on research project writing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Required Reading
    Practical Research actually is required reading for my Ph.D. Since it is a text book is does cost a lot. It was the same price at Amazon as it would have been to order it through my university. However, the shipping was free with Amazon, so I came out ahead. The book is well written, in plain English. The advice is practical. Some of the advice about using technology is a bit behind the times, but that is to be expected. The font size is small, but this would not be a problem for most people under 40. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A true life horror story
    A really compelling read! I could not put this book down. Before I read 'The Hot Zone' I had never really taken much interest in virology. Richard Preston writes his account very effectively in the style of a novel, but the fact that the horrors of Marburg and Ebola that he describes are actually true, gave me many sleepless nights. A frightening aspect of these filoviruses is that their source has still not been found. If only all non-fictional books were as readable as this!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Truly terrifying from the start to the end
    I am someone who loves classics... so I never read this kind. But I happened to read it on my trip to east coast. I finished within 2 days. At first, I was scared, then i accept the truth... it became better. And it's so good from the start to end... So realistic, u can touch the grip of it... feel like it's happening around the corner.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Sub-par
    I've been wanting to read this novel for several years now.Taking Virology during my undergraduate career only peaked my interest in reading about Ebola in a novel-style context.There's not much known about the Ebola virus, even to this day, and I was intrigued to see how Preston would incorporate this knowledge (or lackthereof) into his book.While the subject matter is extremely interesting and engaging, I will have to agree that his writing style is sub-par.I found myself skimming through whole paragraphs because of his mundane and repetitive diction and syntax.If it had been written by someone else, I think I could have immensely enjoyed this book (I'm a major science nerd, and I love reading science books).The only thing that kept me going to the finish was the fact that the entire novel was riding on the subject matter Ebola itself.The virus was what kept the novel going (I actually enjoyed all the factual paragraphs about Ebola...reminded me of the course I took in college! Haha, that, and I like seeing how factually correct Preston was).Overall, it seems like most of his facts are correct (there are a few things that I would contest, but that's besides the point), but honestly, the book was a bore...which is a shame, because it's written on such a fascinating subject.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not ideal for planning biomedical studies
    I have found it very difficult to identify a good book on study design for the biomedical industry as most are too focused on engineering/manufacturing applications.Though this book does discuss many different study designs and their theoretical underpinnings well, it does not do a very good job of explaining the issues of sample size and power.These issues are critical to designing studies in biologic settings.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Long-awaited update to a classic
    This is the best applied book in any scientific or mathematical subject that I have ever read.The reviewers who are looking for equations and the typical assumptions-theory-proof presentation just picked up the wrong book.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Not recommended as a text book
    As a text book, this book will drive students crazy. Despite the typos which can be found not occasionally, I found the authors wrote most of the examples using large paragraphs but hard to comprehend.Pretty often the results they generated comes from nowhere. No clear deduction, some times even no equations, just tell you some meanlingless number. The authors must have treated students as experienced as they are, therefore they omit most of the important details for a student to follow. Obviously, by using computer software, they can easily get answers from problems they made without bothering write down how they can get it by pencil and paper.

    I bought this book on a recommendation of a lecturer at a recent conference.He said that this was the first book to buy if one wants to learn about AI.He was right.The author is straight to the point.The material is easy to digest.The examples are applicable.Because of this book, I can immediately put AI to use in developing better teams and groups.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quantifiable Appreciation
    Recently, I attended a monthly meeting for professional coaches where the speaker made a presentation on Appreciative Inquiry. He passed around many books on the subject as he continued his talk. I was impressed enough with Sue Hammond's Thin Book of Appreciative Inquiry to go right home and order it. I am not usually one who cares for national bestsellers, but in this case... I can see why. It is a valuable tool for any coach, mentor or anyone in life who seeks a better, clearer understanding of how to appreciate life, work, people, everything really. Learning to appreciate makes a quantifiable difference in your life and times.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Helps Create Possibilities
    I use this book in my coaching business.The book is a great source of usable information that can be easily understood.Hammond includes tips that can help shift one's thinking in a positive way.If we could all operate in the manner she describes we would be better leaders (at any level).

    2-0 out of 5 stars A dissenting opinion
    First, I want to say that I have NOT read this book;I have some commentsbased on its table of contents.I teach research methods in education, andhave served on over a hundred dissertation committees in education andother fields (including several dissertations in psychology), and I wouldnot use or recommend this book primarily because of its extremely limitedtreatment of qualitative research.Despite the book cover's claim that thebook deals with "the entire range of research methodologies inpsychology", the coverage of qualitative methods appears to be limitedto one chapter on naturalistic and case-study methods.(A second chapterwhich deals with field research in fact seems to focus onquasi-experimental and single-subject designs, which are not qualitative.) The rest of the book is heavily quantitative/experimental in its approach(there are three chapters on experimental design alone).It seemsrevealing that although there are sections on the limitations ofnaturalistic and case study research and correlational and differentialresearch, there is no explicit section on the limitations of experimentalresearch. There is also no discussion of one of the most commonqualitative approaches used in psychology--the qualitative interview study,which is different from a "case study".(For more on thisapproach, I recommend "Learning from Strangers:The Art and Method ofQualitative Interview Studies", by the psychologist RobertWeiss.)5-0 out of 5 stars an excellent text with great web + cd support
    I decided to adopt this text for my course as it is comprehensive, up-to-date, and includes a wealth of supplementary materials that are web-based, as well as available on the accompanying CD.Recommended highlyfor undergrad AND graduate students.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good baseline book for those preparing for a dissertation
    As a Ph.D. student that is about to start my dissertation I found thisbook extremely helpful in wading through the various research and analysismethods.Filled with examples (although principally focused onPsychology), the book has helped me plan my dissertation.A greatreference book and in my opinion a must have for those who are about tostart their dissertation. ...

Yet essential as research is to the ultimate success of your work, performing it is not an innate talent.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Useful...
    I am a master's student just beginning graduate studies in the humanities.I picked up this book during my first semester and devoured it over the course of a few days (my undergraduate degree is in mathematics, so I figured I was a little behind the curve in my present area).It's the kind of book I think I will return to occasionally throughout my studies.There's some useful stuff here, but the main point of the book is "make sure you make a good argument!"That's really what it boils down to.As someone with a solid background in logic, however, I found much of the book to be reducible to basic principles of common sense.There's a section on "warrants" for example that sounds very sophisticated and difficult, but is really just an exercise in constructing a logical argument by using universally accepted propositions.Now this is fine, but I think the material could be presented in a much simpler manner.Instead of using large tables and graphics with arrows and textboxes and all that jazz, the authors could have taken a more minimalist route and avoided a lot of confusion. I don't know... maybe I would have just preferred a different format.Some of the things in the book really bug me.For example, chapter seven introduces the ideas of claim, warrants, reason, and evidence.To put it simply, you base claims on reasons.Evidence is the cold hard reality upon which the reasoning process rests.Warrants are like propositions which connect reasons to claims in the way antecedents are connected to consequents.If your warrant is something like A=>B then your reasons will need to coincide with A and your claims with B (if your warrant is going to successfully connect reasons to claims).If your claim is more specific than B then your warrant isn't strong enough (and your claim is unjustifiably strong).If your reason is broader than A then your claim won't necessarily follow because your not sticking to the limits of the proposition.This kind of stuff is very basic logical reasoning which everyone is familiar with.So why do the authors say "as we said, this is not easy stuff."Maybe it's not easy because the presentation is muddled.It could have been simplified by taking a more symbolic route (perhaps in addition to, or as a a preliminary, what is already here).

    Excellent way to learn the steps required to write an quality research paper.Learning the proper way to do reseach will remove stress and make writing fun.I am a 1 year MBA student at WSU but I wish I learned these techniques in high school.The next edition should have examples and resources for business students.

I haven't tried any of these projects yet, but they have been carefully thought out with safety in mind. The author also gives interesting backgrounds to the projects. I wouldn't want to be "hoisted with my own petard" as Shakespeare wrote. I'm going to wait till winter with a snow cover before attempting the fire kite. Great stuff! I recommend this.

    3-0 out of 5 stars An important if flawed book
    Make no mistake. This is an important book. Zeldman is a leader in the web standards movement and his voice is worth paying attention to. On the plus side, he offers some good talking points for using with bosses and clients on why designing with web standards is a good thing. He also gives reasonable and well thought out examples and case studies of well designed sites.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of knowledge, somewhat redundant
    I got this book a while back and did learn a lot from it, which some of the tips and techniques I still use today. However I did find the book to be very redundant in some of the explanations and techniques. I did however like the fact that real world examples where given and there was no browser favoring from the author which is really good considering a book isn't suppose to be an ad like so many other authors seem to think.
    4-0 out of 5 stars 2nd Edition Review: a great reference with a few chapters of rambling in the beginning
    To say Jeffrey Zeldman is a character is an understatement. However, he's earned his right, in a way, to stand in his soapbox and preach about web standards, since he's been pushing them for quite a while now. However, the book suffers from one main problem: it takes over 100 pages to get to the point (designing with web standards). In the first few chapters he goes on for a while about what's wrong with the state of the web, what things are being done violating the standards, etc. to the point that it gets a little old.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Useful reference
    This is an excellent concise introduction to cardiac catheterization.This book is now in its 4rth edition published in 2003 and includes a wealth of material on the basics of this field.650 pages encompass 10 chapters on topics such as arterial and venous acess, hemodynamic data, angiographic data, EP studies and ablation, research techniques, special techniques, high-risk cardiac catheterization, and interventional techniques.The book includes specific, how-to information.However, this short text is not intended to fully teach such advanced techniques as catheter ablation or interventional cardiology. Very useful tables and clear diagrams are included (496 illustrations).
    3-0 out of 5 stars This is a essential reference, but
    I have been a cath labo nurse for 3 months.This is a nice book for cath labo staff like me, but there isn't so many figure enough to understand coronary anatomy in angiography and electorophysic study.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Cath Lab Staple
    The cardiac catheterization handbook is the essential reference for the cardiac cath lab. The book covers a wide range of topics including the cath lab organization, hemodynamics, electrophysiology, angiography and interventions. There are some great diagrams that compare catheter shape and radiographic views which are very helpful for those new to cath lab. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Essential for Chemists!
    As a chemist, I am often in need of techniques for purification of various chemicals.Often time is a constraint and the "best" technique may be too time consuming, if one even knows what it is.This text offers several alternatives to the purificatin of most common compounds (especially solvents), including the best way to make the compound pure as well as other known techniques.One can then choose, based on the reaction one is doing whether one needs to use the best techniques or the fastest technique to get mostly pure material or somewhere inbetween.Unfortunately, often the text does not list the actual percent purity that each technique can yield (though it is often easy enough to guess which methodology will yield the best results.)An invaluable resource for any chemist, but especially for graduate students.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the "Synthetic" Chemist
    This is an indispensible resource for any synthetic chemist, either organic or inorganic (not sure about the biochemical section).This book has concise, informative entries on the purification of a vast number ofcommon solvents and reagents.I don't know how any chemist can survivewithout having this on his/her bookshelf!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for the Organic Chemist
    Like Carey & Sundberg, Jerry March, the Aldrich catalog, and the Merck Index, (etc.), this book should be a benchmate for the Organic Chemist.It is very good when one requires the purification of reagents, or thedrying/purification of solvents.The protocols for purification areusually pretreatment followed by distillation or recrystallization, and canbe carried out to give anywhere from moderately pure material, to givingthe pure, pure substance.Read more

    Kuehl covers a lot of statistical designs, and provides great examples and practice problems.However, the book is not "user friendly" even for student who have had several semesters coursework in regressionanalysis.Also, the author tends to change his notation from chapter tochapter without telling the reader, thus creating great confusion.Forexample "r" or "k" could signify replicate.Somesections are poorly organized. ...

    This is a very useful reference to have if you work extensively on HPLC.I find its of more use to understand concepts ...there is a lot of information here.5-0 out of 5 stars Plactical and Rational method Development!
    Rational Method development for HPLC is resented. Instruction of rational development of 3-solvent separation system is excellent. This book also has useful know-hows and tools in practical laboratory experiments, such as strength of hydrogen bonding of base silica and nomograph for estimation of"solvent strength" for reversed phase HPLC.
