About the Author:

David Gray is Professor of Leadership and Organisational Behaviour at the University of Greenwich.  His research interests, and publication record, include research methods, management learning (particularly coaching and mentoring), professional identity, action learning, reflective learning, management learning in SMEs and the factors that contribute to SME success.  He has published books and articles on research methods, organizational learning, and coaching and mentoring. David has led a number of EU-funded research programmes including one examining the impact of coaching on the resilience of unemployed managers in their job-searching behaviours and another on how action learning can sustain unemployed managers in starting their own business. He has recently completed a global survey into the professional identity of coaches. When not leading research projects he tries to play golf.

Review:

"Doing Research In The Real World is an excellent, comprehensive resource for research students and academics, which effectively communicates the fundamentals of research to an interdisciplinary audience. The book provides an in depth understanding of the relationship between ontology, epistemology, research methodology and methods as well as the complexity of data collection, analysis and synthesis. Intertwined with the real world context, this book is particularly useful in helping research students understand and navigate the complex nature of research."

--Emma Murphy (10/17/2013)

This is a very good book; it provides a genuinely insightful approach to methods, rather than the more bog-standard textbooks, this one offers a more 'realistic' overview of methods.--Daniel Bloyce

This is an extremely useful, accessible text which comprehensively guides the reader through research methods. It is an ideal handbook for students and early career researchers. The only flaw is the missing ebook: the download is not available.--Branwen Bingle (12/17/2013)

'Gray skilfully explains daunting concepts, such as the philosophy of research, in an unpretentious manner, and, as the book progresses, builds the readers confidence in their own knowledge and abilities. The interactive nature of the book and its use of videos is a real strength, making it easier to engage with, and, along with the quality of the content, engaging.

This book is a valuable resource for those undertaking research in the social sciences and therefore deserves a place on the bookshelves of undergraduates and postgraduates alike, as well as those involved in their teaching.'
