"The writing is one of the text's greatest strengths and I would not attempt to improve it. Another strength lies in the writing and organization of Chapters 7 and 8, which introduce hypothesis testing. These chapters are unusually good, which is important, because of the central role the concepts play in future topics."
"What I love about the textbook and what makes me recommend it to anyone who will listen is the level at which it is written. Too often I review statistics texts that (I feel) are above an introductory level. They don't spend enough time on the fundamental concepts that students need to understand before they move on."
"It seems appropriate for both strong and weak students. I'd quickly recommend this text to others to gain a readable and engaging presentation that is accuratge, clear, and concise. This text is one of the best out there - for both students and instructors."
"This text is very readable and student-friendly, and presents the material at a level appropriate for our undergraduate psychological statistics course.... There are ample examples from psychological research and from statistical software output."
