About the Author:


Glenn Geher is Professor and Chair of Psychology at the State University of New York at New Paltz, where he has taught Statistics and various other courses related to psychology and evolution since 2000. He also is the founding director of New Paltz's Evolutionary Studies Program, which has been awarded thousands of dollars from the National Science Foundation to help advance evolution's place in higher education. He has over 60 publications including several books and articles on various topics related to evolution and social psychology. His work has been covered in several media outlets including the New York Times, Chronicle of Higher Education, Redbook, and Cosmopolitan. He lives with his wife Kathy and two children, Megan and Andrew, in rural upstate New York.

Sara Hall has earned degrees in both Psychology and Criminology. She lives in Oregon with her husband, Benjamin, and their four children, Jackson, Stella, Susanna, and Sailor.

Review:


"The book is very readable for students that may not be comfortable with a large number of formulas. Explanations are extensively textual in form and diagrams are used where needed. If you are teaching a service course for students in the social, behavioral or life sciences and don't want to use a standard basic statistics book, this is one that will work for you and your students." --Charles Ashbacher, Mathematical Association of America Reviews
