Use of a concrete example that is woven across multiple chapters provides a thread of continuity that allows readers to follow the step-by-step process for understanding the method. A guiding heuristic helps orient the reader at the beginning of each chapter to understand where they are in the process of conducting an analysis. Analytic checklists easily summarize the analytic process described in the chapter and serve as a reference. Practice exercises provide essential practice and reinforce key concepts. Helpful summaries and key points succinctly summarize main points of each chapter.
