Must have guide
I am very new to this type of project so I bought this book as it was on a recommended reading list and I liked the review I read. I've found the style of writing very easy to read and understand. It presents clear steps about the approach to use for your research; from how to go about selecting your topic - something I was struggling with - to avoid research that does not add value.
