Here’s something that can’t go in my methodology chapter, cos it’s too special-plea-dy.  True nonetheless.

“In actuality, the demands of a case study on a person’s intellect, ego, and emotions are far greater than those of any other research strategy. This is because the data collection procedures are not routinized.”

(Yin, 1994:55)
