'This is the kind of statistics book that I would like to write. Luckily, I don't have to do that now' 'I fully recommend this book as an undergraduate statistics text for those who prefer a minimal maths approach. If you also teach SPSS then coverage of that package is a bonus' 'Here at last is a book which does not over-burden the student with too much maths but which also takes the subject seriously, giving detailed explanations and providing good topic coverage' 'This is a book that can be used throughout the undergraduate career' "Andrew Schofield, University of Birmingham Psychology Learning & Teaching, Volume 4: Issue 1, September 2004" 'This clear, concise, step by step approach, without a mathematical formula in sight really does replace the familiar feelings of dread and intimidation, with confidence and motivation to use and understand statistical tests.' "Amazon reviewer, Jan 2002. """
