"The Handbook of Autoethnography offers an invigorating set of ideas to the history, practice, and interpretation of lived experience. The serious treatment and strong focus on writing and reflection make this collection essential for emerging and experienced narrative scholars. I will certainly use this book in my Oral history, Life History and Biography Methods course."

--Valerie J. Janesick, Professor, University of South Florida

"The Handbook of Autoethnography provides the first comprehensive collection of autoethnographic scholarship illustrating the depth and breadth of autoethnographic praxis. The authors offer clear and substantive pedagogic methodology as well as challenge the assumptions and scholarly parameters of autoethnography. A must-read for the numerous disciplinary practitioners interested in the liberatory work of autoethnography."

--Tami Spry, author of Body, Paper, Stage: Writing and Performing Autoethnography
"In this handbook, we not only learn about the personal stories of contributors but also the social world in which we are all situated. A text for all researchers and students across the humanities, social sciences, communication, education, social work, and health."

--Pranee Liamputtong, La Trobe University

"This dream-team of editors and authors do not disappoint. Handbook of Autoethnography is a beautiful, significant and inspiring collection that both synthesizes the field and expands it."

--Patricia Leavy, independent researcher and novelist

"This evocative volume reinforces the importance of storytelling and personal narrative in the social sciences. It brings new insights to the applications of autoethnography in the twenty-first century and provides a valuable resource for practitioners of self-reflexive approaches."

--Deborah Reed-Danahay, University at Buffalo, SUNY

"This is an excellent collection - my much-used hard cover copy is showing signs of wear (but no tear!) from doctoral student use and chapters in the book underpinned a number of revisions I recommended in a recent thesis examination. Highly recommended!"
--Jon Austin, University of Southern Queensland
