King, Horrocks and Brooks (2019) have provided clear and helpful methods text, which is a hands-on guide for qualitative researchers. The publication makes the complex processes and intricacies of qualitative interviewing accessible without oversimplifying or losing the nuance and essence of what constitutes sound qualitative interview practice. The latest addition introduces a new contributor, Joanne Brooks. Edition 2, longer than the edition 1 by 101 pages. The new publication has foregrounded Ethics in Qualitative Interviewing, moving that from Chapter 7 to Chapter 3. There are two new Chapters, the first on Visual Methods in Qualitative Interviewing (Chapter 8) and the second, Chapter 12, on Interviews and Discourse Analysis. Prior to the References, Edition 2 also includes a much-welcomed Glossary of Terms. The text succeeds in its purpose to offer practical guide and useful text equally relevant to qualitative interview researchers no matter their experience. It provides a though overview from the philosophical underpinning all the way through to the analysis of interview research data.
