"Field makes concerted efforts to provide statistical tools in a very lighthearted fashion by throwing in humor, with great success... Very useful, valuable, and interesting. Highly recommended." (D.V. Chopra Choice Magazine)
"Aimed at a wide student audience, the objectives are to explain statistics theory and practice in a clear, engaging, user-friendly way, and the book does this well. For the purist, some of the phrasing might be loose and the theory light, but the book works well as an introductory text for its intended audience." (Andrew Millard, Research Officer of Greater Glasgo NHS)
"This text is notable for the breadth of statistics covered and for seamless meshing this content with SPSS." (Eileen Gigliotti)
