  • By PROF M. COOPER on 16 May 2011

    I found this a very practical, clear and concise introduction to conducting a systematic review or a meta-analysis, that clearly sets out the steps involved and would be an excellent first text for anyone in the social sciences interested in this area of study. Downsides of the book are that it is a quite brief (just 90 pages or so of text), focuses solely on reviewing randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and is specifically orientated towards educational research - so a touch less relevant for those outside of this field. Overall, though, a very valuable introduction.
