′There′s lots to commend this book. It′s readable, helpful, humorous and works to gently guide the reader through an unfamiliar new territory. The aim is to give the reader both the knowledge and the confidence to think about statistics and how it′s used in the real world′ - TechBookReport With a new chapter, enhanced graphics, an instructor′s manual and practice data sets, the Second Edition of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics builds on the success of the First Edition by approaching an often intimidating and difficult subject in a way that is informative, personable, and clear. The text does this through the use of a conversational tone that takes students through various statistical procedures beginning with simple descriptions of data including correlations and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques up through analysis of variance. In addition, there is coverage of using SPSS (and lots of data sets for hands-on experience), a review of more advanced statistical techniques, coverage of reliability, validity, introductory non-parametric, and more. Chapters contain features such as sidebars offering additional technical information about the topic (not essential but of interest to many students) and set-off points that reinforce major themes. Finally, questions to chapter exercises and a complete glossary are located at the back of the book.
