I have it on good authority that it's a useful resource. Make no mistake, however, I have yet to feast my eyes upon its succulent, statistically enlightened pages. For goodness sake kids don't buy the book until you're SURE you're gonna need it. Been getting straight As in stats regardless

Book is pretty useless. Makes things more complicated than they need to be. University advised that we buy it but research methods lecturers advise against it. Took ages to arrive.
