Appreciative inquiry: Researching greatness

Abstract: 
Appreciative Inquiry: Research for Change is the first book
devoted to appreciative inquiry (AI) as a research method,
but the book is far more than a manual in which readers
search for answers to technical issues. Trained in health-care
research, Reed places AI in a research context and commu-
nicates stories, specific examples, exercises, and reflections to
show that AI can be used to create new knowledge and un-
derstanding. Reeds perspective and hopeful attitude convey
her thoughtful evaluations of AI for serious potential, and
may convince the reader of transformative possibilities in-
herent in AI research.
