I enjoyed being able to listen to the book while I drove. The text-to-speech function is not nearly as good as professional narration, but comes in handy when you want to listen & drive.
My dissertation will be a study of multiple cases, and I intend to revisit Yin's book to guide me.
The book is not a follow-the-numbers process by any means, no cookie-cutter here. Instead, it contains a structured process from beginning to end, including analysis and reporting. Along the way, Yin forces the reader to ask questions and consider the applicability of the case study approach to one's own work.
All in all, very helpful and no doubt, it will be a reference for me in years to come.
