Second — and closely related — we wanted to disaggregate the practical aspects of qualitative research from theory. We need to know theory, and our research needs to be theoretically grounded.
We have noticed that in the classroom, or in supervision, this theory can provide a stumbling block and an impediment to learning. Some of these are in the book; many more are on the companion website. Finally, we wanted it to be fresh, engaging, real, and hopefully even funny in places.
