About the Author

Neil J. Salkind received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in Human Development, and after teaching for 35 years at the University of Kansas, he remains as a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology and Research in Education where he continues to collaborate with colleagues and work with students. His early interests were in the area of children's cognitive development.  After researching in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he became a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina's Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed directions and focused on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He has over 150 professional papers and presentations, has written over 100 trade and textbooks, and is the author of Statistics for People Who Think They Hate Statistics (Sage), Theories of Human Development (Sage), and Exploring Research. He has edited several encyclopedias including the Encyclopedia of Human Development, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and the recently published Encyclopedia of Research Design. He was the editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years and lives in Lawrence, Kansas, where he likes to read, swim with the River City Sharks, bake brownies, and poke around old Volvos and old houses.

This book arrived on time as scheduled and is easy to read. This has been the first textbook that I consider to have been written for understanding as well as knowledge.
Thank you

For being about a topic that really makes my head spin (statistics and research) It was actually not bad. It helped me wrap my head around the topic, was easy to follow and gave good examples. Would recommend it for a more artistic person having to thread through a statistics class.

There are many mistakes throughout the 8th edition. Numerous numbers (+,-), formulas, and examples are wrong. Use a different book if you can. This one is unreliable.
