the text is a welcome contribution to the music therapy literature, as it richly and effectively conveys the editor's message on both the plurality and unique advantages of case study designs in music therapy. The text is perhaps best suited as a reference source for examples of different case study designs, as well as for examples of cases themselves. Such a reference source could benefit music therapy clinicians and researchers (particularly the final chapter on guidelines for designing and implementing case study research). Moreover, with supplemental resources on the basic elements of case study design, it could also benefit music therapy students (undergraduate and graduate) and educators.
