Ehrenreich, B. (2001). Nickel and dimed: On (not) getting by in America. Henry Holt and Company.

In this book of nonfiction based on the journalist’s experiential research, Ehrenreich attempts to ascertain whether it is currently possible for an individual to live on a minimum-wage in America. Taking jobs as a waitress, a maid in a cleaning service, and a Walmart sales employee, the author summarizes and reflects on her work, her relationships with fellow workers, and her financial struggles in each situation.

An experienced journalist, Ehrenreich is aware of the limitations of her experiment and the ethical implications of her experiential research tactics and reflects on these issues in the text. The author is forthcoming about her methods and supplements her experiences with scholarly research on her places of employment, the economy, and the rising cost of living in America. Ehrenreich’s project is timely, descriptive, and well-researched.

NOTE: Each article should have its own page for the annotated bibliography.

Guide for Writing an Annotated Bibliography

What Is an Annotated Bibliography?

A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, Web sites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for

researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called “References” or “Works Cited”

depending on the style format you are using. A bibliography usually just includes the

bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.).

What Should be Included in the Annotated Bibliography?

An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes

a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Depending on your project or the

assignment, your annotations may do one or more of the following.

• Summarize: Some annotations merely summarize the source. What are the main

arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If

someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say? The length of your

annotations will determine how detailed your summary is.

• Assess: After summarizing a source, it may be helpful to evaluate it. Is it a useful source?

How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? Is the information

reliable? Is this source biased or objective? What is the goal of this source?

• Reflect: Once you’ve summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into

your helping you better understand holistic nursing. Was this source helpful to you? How

does it help you shape your argument? How can you use this source in your research

project? Has it changed how you think about your topic?

***The annotated bibliography must include a summary, assessment, and reflection.***

Evans, S., Seidman, L.C., Lung, K., Sternlieb, B., & Zeltzer, L.K. (2018) Yoga for Teens with Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Results from a Mixed-Methods Pilot Study. Holist Nurs Pract. 32(5):253-260. doi: 10.1097/HNP.0000000000000288.

This article (Evans et al., 2018) examined the effect of Yoga on Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Totally 18 adolescents who met with ROME III IBS symptom criteria were selected to participate a one-week Lyengar Yoga program, then their IBS symptoms were rated plus a general questionnaire survey was conducted for data analysis. Study subjects were categorized into responders and non-responders based on the change of IBS symptoms. The study team reported that 50% of experimental subjects were responders, of whom there was significant alleviation of sleep quality and visceral sensitivity index (p<0.05). Interestingly, the parents’ support and time of home practice were positively correlated to the outcomes of Yoga therapy.

This study selects teenage group for research subjects and uses one-week yoga practice as an intervention. As a complementary medical therapy, Yoga needs weeks to months of practice to become effective, so one week of study period might not be long enough to observe the potential results. Of the seven categories of IBS symptoms, only two reaches statistical significance and three are slightly above the cut off line of p=0.05. If this study can enlarge the sample size, it is possible to see more positive results.

It is interesting to read the discussion part and see the parents’ different attitude in responder group versus the non-responder group. The 90% of non-responders’ parents cannot recall the homework sheets of Yoga or show enthusiasms to the Yoga program. Home practice is an essential part of complementary medicine such as yoga and musical therapy. It is important to do client education to enhance the compliance to treatment and obtain a supporting home environment, if a maximal outcome is desired in clinical practice.
