Editorial Reviews

Review

“The author has a wonderful way of taking complex material and presenting it to an already anxiety-filled audience in a manner that not only sets students’ nerves at ease but facilitates their learning to apply the material in useful ways. This text should be required reading in all beginning-level stats classes if for no other reason than to build confidence in the students.” (Christopher J. Maglio)

“There is no extraneous information in the text. It's what students need to know, presented in a way that does not intimidate.” (Adriana Buliga-Stoian)

“The word statistics is often seen as a nasty word to social scientists but Salkind deals with that and makes it somewhat enjoyable for the students and an absolute joy for the instructors.” (Dr. David F. Nicholson)

“It is easy to follow and great for learning . . . My students absolutely love the book.” (Soomi Lee)

“I truly think this is the best statistics book I have encountered." (Daniel R. Block)

About the Author

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD 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, and after research in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina’s Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed direction and the focus was on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He has delivered more than 150 professional papers and presentations; written more than 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 (Prentice Hall). 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 editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years and lives in Lawrence, Kansas, where he likes to letterpress print (see https://sites.google.com/site/bigboypressofks/ for more), read, swim with the Lawrence River City Sharks, bake brownies (see the recipe at http://www.statisticsforpeople.com/The_Brown.html), and poke around old Volvos and old houses

This book was required for a Kinesiology course and i enjoyed reading it.
Unlike traditional textbooks, it seems like the author is talking to you and even cracks some jokes.
There are summaries at the end of the chapters and even some review questions.
Plus the chapters aren't long and they get straight to the point.
Everything flows together.

This book explains statistics in simple language so that anyone can understand. This is not the case for most stats books! I have taken several 500 and 600 level statistics courses, and I still go back to this book occasionally to review something or read how to explain it to someone else. I recommend this book to everyone I know taking statistics

This is an amazing book on statistics. It's written in a language you can understand and gives tons of real world examples to help those of us who may not grasp math quite as easily as others. If your professor is using this book be prepared to finally understand the world of statistics.
