Review

"Salkind's book has been (still is) an extraordinary part of the process of Statistical learning in my courses since 2004."
(Jose R. Rivera 2008-11-17)

"Another great teaching tool from an author who understands how to teach statistics." (Dr. Neil Penny 2008-11-17) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD from the University of Maryland in Human Development. After teaching for 35 years at the University of Kansas, he remains 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 to focus 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 read, swim with the River City Sharks, letterpress print using 1820s technology, bake brownies (see the Excel version of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics for the recipe at http://www.statisticsforpeople.com), and poke around old Volvos and old houses.

When he's not typing away, he enjoys reading, collecting signed first editions, cooking, competitive Masters swimming, chocolate in almost any form and working on vintage Volvos and living with Leni.

Customer Reviews

The book is actually very easy to read and understand.
Jillian Smith
I felt like the author understood where I was struggling and was saying the right things to get people to understand concepts.
V. Legere
If you are taking a stats class as a requirement for an unrelated degree, you will love it.

This book has been quite a challenge. The material itself is not hard and is well explained. The only problem is ALL THE ERRORS IN THE BOOK!! There are so many errors, it nearly makes it impossible to learn. Every chapter you have to go to the website to look up the correct formulas or data sets or answers for the back of the book. Incredibly frustrating. I'm just trying to do my work and learn for grad school. This book is not helping me keep my stress level down. The idea for the book is good. When the errors get corrected, the information will be very helpful.

For students wanting to save paper and read on the go, DO NOT BUY the e-book version of this text. Amazon.com has mislabeled the item as the fourth edition of "Statistics for People..." The e-book is actually an old version of the Excel Edition, which differs substantially from the title advertised on the page.

I have eight stats books in my bookshelf, from Dummy's Guides to college textbooks. Salkind's text presented the material, seemingly directed toward graduate students, in the most clear and easy to understand manner of all I've read. It was actually enjoyable to read. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one.

This book was easy to understand. If your focus of study is Statistics this book may not provide you with enough information to interpret your results as in depth as you need to. If you are taking a stats class as a requirement for an unrelated degree, you will love it. I made it through graduate level Educational Statistics with a comfortable "A".

Format: Paperback
As an educator, I reviewed this text and found it woefully inappropriate for use in higher education due to the errors within the textbook in definitions of terms and in the sample answers in the back of the text. They simply do not coorelate and are worse than having no answer as it discourages every learner that looks for guidance and reinforcement that they havea correct answer and are understandign a concept. They should issue refunds to anyone who purchased the book

This was my first time using Amazon.com, and I must say that I am very pleased. The book that I received at a reasonable used-book-price is in such good condition that it doesn't even look like anyone has ever opened it.

As for the book itself, "Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics", I have found this book to be very helpful in my undergraduate-level, independent study of advanced statistics. The author's writing style is both engaging and humorous, and he carefully explains each concept and equation, using many helpful examples along the way to clear up any confusion. Obviously, he has taught the material to students many times himself, so he can identify common pitfalls that students may be caught in as they learn a subject that is both daunting and necessary- statistics.

I wish I had this book earlier. He explains statistics clearly and with a very needed sense of humor. His examples are precise and include both calculations by hand and with SPSS19. The layout of chapters progresses nicely without overwhelming with too many concepts at once.

This text is a very easy read and is actually quite entertaining. Salkind uses humor and casual conversation to explain a topic that may otherwise be dull and difficult to unerstand. Each chapter is rated with a difficulty scale.
