Derived from his bestselling text Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics, author Neil J. Salkind presents readers with The Excel Edition! Using the same personable and clear style that made previous editions so successful, this new edition teaches students how they can use Excel to learn the basics of statistics. This is not a text on how to use Excel, rather it illustrates how this program can make the statistics learning experience a better one.

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD from the University of Maryland in Human Development, and taught for 35 years at the University of Kansas in the Department of Psychology and Research in Education. His early interests were in the area of children’s cognitive development, and after research in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina’s Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed direction and the focus was on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He delivered more than 150 professional papers and presentations; and wrote more than 100 trade and textbooks; and is the author of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics (Sage), Theories of Human Development (Sage), and Exploring Research (Prentice Hall). He edited several encyclopedias, including the Encyclopedia of Human Development, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and the recently published Encyclopedia of Research Design. He was editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years.
"In this Excel edition of his popular text, Salkind provides tools students need to use Excel along with basics of statistics for a first or second course. Using an informal writing style and humorous cartoons, he walks students through the use of Excel for statistical analyses and overviews analytical techniques. Other reader-friendly features include top ten lists, numerous tips and margin icons, and a glossary." (SciTech Book News 2006-12-05)
"Firmly recommending it! . . . The Excel directions and examples are wonderfully clear. A valuable tool for the multitudes who are not going to be statisticians but who face careers replete with data summaries they will need to assimilate and understand." (N.W Schillow Science & Technology 2007-02-28)
