'The mathematics behind the tests is always given in considerable detail. This is admirable and helps students to see the logics behind the tests...I like the exploration of the various options for the tests he discusses, and the discussions of the pros and cons of specific variants of tests' - Nurse Researcher (David C. Howell )
"It is definitely the best written stats book I've seen. I found myself reading through it like a novel, just because I found it interesting. In addition, I like that it is well-integrated with the SPSS information, and I think the students will really appreciate it, too."
(Kimberly Dasch )

I was rubbish at maths when I was at school, so I didn't hold much hope at being able to complete the Statistics module I am studying. But thanks to this book, I am already ahead of my class.
For me, the most impressive thing about the book is that it teaches statistics as well as how to use SPSS to carry out the tests.
I would recommend this book to anyone, stats virgin to stats pro.
All I can say is: Buy this book now. You will never regret it.
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.
