"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!"

"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.

"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."
