Jovanovic in Journal of Product Innovation Management "Richard A. Krueger has managed to address almost every issue and problem the potential researcher is likely to encounter. The book is packed with sound advice and detailed approaches, making this method a success. . . . If you are even thinking about doing any kind of group interview, this is the place to start." --Nursing Times The highly acclaimed first edition of Richard A.
