How to Do Your Research Project has been my research 'bible'! I used it a lot in initial stages, and now in my writing up, I am coming back to it, especially for some sane advice around analysing quantitative data. The writing style is very clear, and having exhausted many of the research texts around advanced research methods, I keep coming back to this book as it makes the most sense.
