It is easy to read and very clearly laid out. It is a step by step guide to writing a review which is extremely helpful as the prospect of reviewing literature can be quite daunting. This book has been an extremely useful text whilst studying for my degree and I would have no problems recommending it to anyone ... I would recommend this book to anyone who is about to embark on writing a literature review as it will make the whole process much less daunting. Vicky Bain, Student Nurse, University of Nottingham, UK "Many lecturers will be familiar with the concern of students trying to clarify what is meant by a literature review: this book does just that... The book has a logical flow but can also be dipped in and out of, dependent on the style of literature review to be undertaken. It is clearly laid out and easy to follow, and the sections are clearly defined... There is a useful glossary defining common terms. I would recommend this book."
