Abstract

This is a very useful book on constructing grounded theory for both untrained and more experienced researchers, which we warmly welcome and recommend to colleagues and students on different university levels. The different steps of grounded theory, from data collection to analysis of qualitative data, are clearly described and discussed in the book. We, i.e. the authors of this review paper, have all used the grounded theory method in our recent doctoral theses in medicine, psychology, public health, and odontology, respectively. We were grateful for the possibility to read and learn from this excellent new book, which fills a gap in the existing arsenal of qualitative method books. Constructivist grounded theory has emerged as a promising approach between positivism and postmodernism with an assumption that multiple realities exist rather than "one and only real reality". Our aim is also to give the readers of the International journal of qualitative studies on health and well-being - QHW a brief summary of the content of the book, chapter by chapter.
