"I envision a day when most textbooks will focus on estimation and meta-analytic thinking as this text does but Geoff Cumming’s book is definitely pioneering this journey. … The voice and pace of the text is engaging. …The videos … [are] one of the bestselling points of the text. … I would certainly … adopt this book for my introductory statistics courses. … I have never read a statistics text that introduced concepts in the way provided in this text―clear and simple examples that "informally" allow the reader to integrate several concepts into their thinking. … Even the more statistically anxious students would be put at ease. ... ESCI allows for students to easily manipulate multiple values and instantly see what happens as a result of that manipulation." - Susan Troncoso Skidmore, Sam Houston State University, USA
"There are many introductory statistics books on the market, but this one [is] especially well-positioned to capitalize on the growing interest … for moving away from relying solely on NHST. ...The author is a well-known and respected advocate of this approach. ….The focus on estimation, meta-analysis, and research integrity … will be embraced by many instructors. ...The writing style is appealing, showing the author to be an excellent teacher. ...The ESCI software will be useful for classroom demonstrations as well as for individual learning. The videos are outstanding – the video on dancing p-values changed the way my graduate students interpret research." – Dale Berger, Claremont Graduate University, USA
"The concepts are developed in interesting contexts and examples. … The ESCI tools are amazing. … The exercises … are excellent, numerous, and likely to be a great help to instructors. … The supplemental material … is impressive and likely to be … persuasive in adoption decisions. … The obvious market is the Intro Stats for psychology market. Strengths: The author’s ability to communicate statistical concepts; His authoritative grasp of NHST principles, research, and practices; His understanding of, and enthusiasm for, estimation methods; The ESCI … exercises." – Bruce Blaine, St. John Fisher College, USA
"It is a brilliant book for two main reasons: it uses an estimation approach from start to finish to help readers to understand effect sizes, confidence intervals and meta-analysis, so important in play therapy research. Even better, it is the first text to explain the new and exciting Open Science practices which encourage replication and enhance the trustworthiness of research. (...) APAC are recommending the book as essential reading for MA students. Also for all others who want to master the black art of statistics in 16 intensive lessons." - Jeff Thomas, The Journal of the International and UK Societies of Play and Creative Arts Therapies

In addition to being an excellent tool for researchers, Cumming’s book is relevant to teachers interested in switching from NHST to effect sizes, and who want their students to learn about the replication crisis, meta-analysis, and open science. Students using this book will still gain the necessary skills to understand the literature published prior to the statistical reform.
The book comes with a number of excellent online resources, including a companion website hosted by the publisher (google: routledge textbooks introduction new statistics). From this website, teachers and students can download slides with images from lecture notes, the Exploratory Software for Confidence Intervals (ESCI), and guides to SPSS and R. More online material is available on the APS website (google: aps new statistics estimation cumming), where readers can watch six excellent videos in which Cumming expands on topics from the book.
I believe (cos' I didn't try it) the material will be more comprehensible with the ESCI software provided by the authors.
My only gripe is that I expected more deeper coverage of CI and effect size. I suppose the earlier book "Understanding the New Statistics" by the first author is better suited for such coverage.
This is the book I will recommending to folks looking for an introductory book about new inferential statistics. I wouldn't be surprised if I too reached for it in my shelf in the future :)
Disclosure: I read the first six chapters and skimmed thru the rest.
