Publisher Synopsis

"The text proceeds in a logical order, building upon what was covered earlier. This is one of its strong suits: it presents the topics in a logical, practical order. It also covers the necessary statistics." -- Charles N. Coleman "Those looking for a full integration of the theory of statistics and its application (through SPSS) will find no better book that this one." -- Steven G. Prus "I truly value the ease with which the author conveys oftentimes confusing and scary information to students." -- Noelle E. Fearn "Accessible and approachable, this book makes a conscious effort to appeal to contemporary social science students who may not have a strong affinity for mathematics." -- Meena Chary "This is a very student-friendly text. The author has succeeded in writing a basic statistics text that is inviting rather than off-putting." -- Michael J. Handel Read more...
