Review quote

This book provides the novice psychologist not just with a comprehensive and comprehensible guide to basic statistics and methodology, but also illuminates and illustrates the links between the two: an unusual, if not a unique feature. I would certainly recommend this book to all first year students who pose the question: 'Why do we have to learn about statistics?' - Graham Davies, University of Leicester
