5.0 out of 5 stars Many plus points, 2 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Statistical Methods for Psychology (International Edition) (Paperback)
I am writing about the 7th International edition, 2010 printing, Wadsworth/Cengage Learning. Overall, the book is excellent. Howell's explanations and descriptions are generally very clear, and he offers plenty of valuable insights and commonsense advice that authors of comparable books have too frequently kept to themselves. The only sections I found disappointing are ones dealing with covariance (in Chapter 16). I have read that the mega-publisher Cengage has fallen on hard times. Perhaps symptomatic of that is the rather poor service the book got from the editorial and proof-reading teams: Errors are too numerous, e.g., typos ('a prior' instead of 'a priori'), wrong numbers in examples (a few annoying instances of this), citations for which there are no entries in the list of references (more than half a dozen, generally the works I most wanted to learn about), and some repeated paragraphs. However, the overall excellence of the book amply makes up for these blemishes, especially since this book is very reasonably priced for one of its size, comprehensiveness, and authoritativeness.

This review is from: Statistical Methods for Psychology (International Edition) (Paperback)
I pay taxes because I believe I should pay appropriately for my family's education, safety, helath and so on. You make millions out of the people in this country, and you have made a fair amount from my purchases but yet you pay far too little tax if any. Just why is this and can your company live with this; can it bear the burden of the bad name it is gradually getting?
