This book is excellent, if you stumbled through an undergraduate degree and need to revise what you learnt (or perhaps did not) then this book is perfect. Also great for undergraduates new to research methods in Psychology.

Andy Field has a fun and charismatic style of writing which makes it as easy as statistics reading and learning can get; through the use of quirky characters and dry humour it really is the best stats book I have come across for an introduction to quantitative research methods and statistical analysis. Do not fear Psychology students 'Discovering Statistics Using SPSS' is here to save the day!

Amazon is an excellent means of buying this book, quick and painless.

This is an excellent book for people who are interested in or are studying Research Methods. It is very well written and clear to understand. There is an excellent use of examples which help make the material interesting and easier to understand. Complex and sometimes difficult to understand material (such as SPSS) is broken down into easy to manage sections.

I would highly recommend this book to both undergraduate and postgraduate students looking to develop their research skills.

I have bought Discovering Statistics by Andy Field because I misplaced my 13-year old statistics book. I based my choice on the reviews I have read but have to admit I was very suspicious about the book. Well, it was a wonderful surprise! The book is great. I sincerely recommend it to students, teachers and anyone who needs statistics for their professional life, whatever the field of research. Moreover, considering the quality and amount of information, it is really affordable. Not only value for money but, much more importantly, value for quality.

As a psychology student, I desperately needed this for revision. There is lots of detail you can take and learn about all the statistical tests... but it's a bit too wordy when all you're trying to do is finding out the basics. This book isn't so much for beginners, but for those who are looking to go into great depth. If You're a first year student using SPSS, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you want to know everything and all about all the statistical tests, this is for you!

I brought this book as a requirement for my undergraduate psychology course. Of course as most people generally do, I hated statistics! But this book surprisingly made it so interesting! Some nights I was up all hours of the night revising and completing coursework but the comments and examples never failed to make me chuckle even at half 2 in the morning!!
Brilliant book and I really recommend it to anyone who is studying psychology even at A level. It starts from the simple statistics to the harder statistics but still easy to understand and grasp the concept of.
Andy Field is definitely an amazing writer and makes statistics fun, which is pretty impossible

If you buy this you have struck gold big time! Won't be selling mine for a looooong time yet, or doubt I even will.

This was a recommended text book for my course and although it has everything I will ever need to know about SPSS, I can't help feeling that it could have been a lot shorter if the smutty jokes and endless waffle were cut out.

Andy Field presents a very user friendly book on statistics that is easy enough for someone with no head at all on statistics. I knew sooner that sooner or later that I will have to confront it during my research studies. I found this book from browsing Amazon and chose it among several others. I am so glad that I made that decision, The book has several illustrations with humorous anecdotes and the companion website is perfect for enhancing knowledge. I have to read it in little chunks as I must have the world's worst head for numbers
