"In this book Dirk vom Lehn provides a well-judged introduction to ethnomethodology (EM) and a fitting tribute to its late, great, progenitor Harold Garfinkel."- Sue White, University of Birmingham, UK, Qualitative Research
"This is an extremely lucid and likeable book, which I found a pleasure to read: vom Lehn's writing style is light and he brings a sense of fun to engaging with conceptual work... Its popularity with students will make it popular with course directors, who can be assured that students receive a thorough introductory grounding in the material that will also lead them into the `essential' texts."- Andrew P. Carlin, St Columb's College, Symbolic Interaction
