"[This book] provides concise explanations of a number of statistical concepts and techniques in easy-to-understand language. The book is an ideal supplement for statistics, research methods, courses that use statistics, or as a handy reference tool to refresh one's memory about key concepts." - SirReadaLot.org
"The author writes quite clearly--better than the average quantitative psychologist...it is a nice supplement that could be used in lab sessions and for personal study...it discusses many basic ideas in easily understandable language, and the 'hands on' experience that students get is likely to be very valuable."
—Keith F. Widaman, Ph.D., University of California at Davis
"...I have often recommended [this book] to education students when they ask for a 'statistics made simple' book....Their reactions have always been very favorable...I would...recommend a book such as this for an undergraduate course."
—Shlomo Sawilowsky, Ph.D., Wayne State University
"The writing style and content is easy to understand....The examples are excellent...this text works well as an introductory text for my grad students to use outside of the classroom." — Juliet A. Davis, Ph.D., University of Alabama
