This book is one of the required book for Doctoral seminar course. Almost every student who takes this course is new to "Official research methodology." This book could be easily understood with a lot of examples. Great book and strongly recommend.

This book does contain some nuggets of wisdom for beginners in social science, but as a student I thought it took far too long to say far too little. There are far too many examples for concepts that only need one or two examples. For example, the authors frequently littler the pages with "Stop. Think." as they propose several alternative hypotheses for certain observations and models. Also, the book does seem to have an suffocating liberal bias. I don't consider myself particularly conservative, but some of the "hypothetical" examples seem pretty off the walls (such as the suggestion that the U.S. discriminates against ethnic minorities because they have higher death rates than whites). Ideally, I would recommend skimming the book and paying attention to the conclusion, but don't get too bogged down in the details.
