"For anyone wanting to experiment with new, theatrical modes of presentation or who is concerned with the quality of such work and the risk of good social researchers making bad art, Saldaña’s book provides a welcome and refreshing entrée to the genre from an experienced theatre practitioner."

" Johnny Saldaña’s book does exactly what it sets out to do: It is a hands-on guide that walks researchers across disciplines step-by-step through interpreting and representing data in an ethnodramatic format. It really is 'research from page to stage.' For those with little theatre experience, Saldaña provides excellent suggestions for additional readings and comparisons of different types of plays. There is much merit in this book as a text for a qualitative research class or special interest class. The exercises provided are great way for students and researchers to be more reflective as they move towards ethnodrama or autoethnodrama as a new form of writing. "
