About the Author:

Joseph F. Healey, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus of Sociology Christopher Newport University. He is author of STATISTICS: A TOOL FOR SOCIAL RESEARCH, 10th Edition (Cengage, 2014); RACE, ETHNICITY, GENDER AND CLASS, 7th Edition (Sage, 2015); DIVERSITY AND SOCIETY, 4th Edition (Sage, 2014); and is co-author of several other texts.

In his spare time, he plays and records music for the hammer dulcimer and banjo.

Review:

"Clear writing, organization, and explanations. I found that the textbook is one of the best I have read so far in terms of the clarity of explanations, particularly the difficult concepts and ideas."

"The Essentials is one of the few actual textbooks I still use. The subject matter of research methods and statistics still requires it. This edition of Healey's book is a 'good' textbook because it is well written, follows a logical sequence within each chapter and from chapter to chapter, and students learn and build a foundation before they move onto the more difficult statistics."
