CHOICE Review

In this slim volume, the authors--all of whom are nursing faculty members (Trinity College, Dublin)--provide a decent and very readable overview of the literature review process. The short chapters are replete with subsections and boxes consisting of key points and other highlights; readers will find that the narrative is divided into digestible chunks. Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of the review process, from basics such as definitions and types of reviews (including systematic reviews), to searching, organizing, analyzing, and synthesizing the literature. The volume concludes with a combined 20 pages of glossary, references, and index. While the intended audience is nursing and social work professionals, as the title suggests, the book is written generally enough to be of interest to anyone in the health care profession who is seeking a practical introduction to the literature review process. Overall, this fine volume should appeal to a broad audience of research novices. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through graduate students; practitioners. M. P. MacEachern University of Michigan
