Ignore the other reviewer -- yes, this textbook costs more than $100 ... so do many other commonly used statistics textbooks, some of which aren't even HALF as good!
It can be very verbose at times. It would be helpful if it presented more outputs directly from the computer tools it recommends. It also would be helpful if it recommended more computer/calculator tools with advantages and disadvantages.
Self-professed "math haters" and the like have surprised themselves at how they really can get a handle on statistics. I believe it's due to the different approach the authors take. The accompanying online tool is AMAZING. I have students forego buying a stat calculator and teach the course in a computer lab using this online tool/calculator.
The authors and publisher are extremely supportive and have directly answered all questions I have had along the way. There is also a large quantity of supporting material for instructors.
The comments about it not incorporating a new approach should just be ignored. IMO sounds like a disgruntled undergrad who didn't get the grade they believed they were entitled to trying to take out their frustrations. I've been teaching statistics to undergraduates for a decade and have taken multiple courses in my own educational career. And yes, the authors take a new approach. Ask any statistician about bootstrapping and you'll find confirmation of this. I find the complaint was about the cost of the text to be unmerited. It's a standard price for a college text at first edition. I also find the complaint about the quality of the text odd. My copy is perfectly well bound and looks like new after a year+ of use.
The text covers a variety of topics so would be well-suited for any stats methods in the social sciences as well.
My own understanding of stats has increased by using this text - I wish this approach was used when I took stats in college.
The text is written very well with ample examples explaining the methods. The general consensus in my statistics course is that the book is very helpful for an introductory statistics course.
