    Story
    "Critical guide for researchers, grad students"
    If you could sum up The Researchers Bible in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, comprehensive, explanatory


    What does Kerri Parr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kerri Parr brings more than narration, she offers an experience. With perfect pace and articulation, her smooth voice invites you to sit back and listen, take it all in and learn.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book in one sitting. I did take advantage of rewinding at times in order to take notes and write down particular methods. It is very easy to go back and forth throughout the chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciated the way Gini Graham Scott offered a prodigious amount of information, including methods of research, models and approaches. She includes a great deal of examples that really help one understand each subject.
