"A book that describes the steps involved in a meta-analysis in an easy-to-understand format (not just as a cookbook recipe) will be a useful addition to the literature. Practical Meta-Analysis aptly fills this niche."--Chockalingam Viswesvaran "ORGANIZATIONAL RESEARCH METHODS, April 2002 "

Because the book does not go beyond the fundamentals of meta-analysis (nor does it purport to), it may not be the only meta-analysis book you need depending on the type of data you're working with. There have been some analyses that I've had to find other books to teach me because they were beyond the scope of this book. Personally, I've found this one to be a useful second book to own: The Handbook of Research Synthesis and Meta-Analysis.
The problem with most intro meta-analysis references is that they are steeped in theory with no examples/practical applications to show you how the theory is applied in everyday life. Still other references are a collection of applications, but provide no guidance on how to interpret the findings. Lipsey's book is a cross between the two. A reasonably intelligent person (with or without a background in meta-analysis) should be able to follow Lipsey's writing without much assistance and appy their findings to their own data. I highly recommend this book. Thanks Mark.
