3.0 out of 5 stars Textbook April 28, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As far as textbooks go, it's a very informative one, and has most of the information one would need for a research methods course (which is the course I needed the book for). It is, however, very hard to read. It may just be that the information itself is difficult to comprehend, or it could be the drawn out way in which the authors chose to relay the information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Editions change August 12, 2011
Format:Paperback
This work has undergone at least one change in lead author and at least two thorough revisions (of which the 8th edition is one) to date -- not uncommon with standard textbooks that have endured for decades.

Whatever the virtues or failings of the current edition of this title, as the beginning of the school year approaches, readers of textbook reviews on Amazon should remember to compare the edition being sold against the editions for which comments were written.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible September 29, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not a good book because it does not explain things in very much detail and the professor didn't like the book either.
