This book turned my hatred of stats and SPSS into love.
I love it! It's the first text I've come across that has been written in such a captivating way. There's humor, tons of information, and awesome resources both within and on the companion website. Kudos to Prof. Field!
I also appreciate how the author made the text interesting to read, but the content is rich enough to provide readers good knowledge on how to draw insights from stats and data. Also, it provides a lot of practical guides for reporting results and findings for research paper. Can't wait to take a deeper dive into the text
I never thought I would find a statistics textbook amusing but somehow our text pulls it off. I also appreciated the online supplementary tools provided by the publisher. They provide a good synthesis of each of the chapters and some easy options to review
I really really love the book, it's the main reason why I'm not curled up in bed with my cats sobbing in fear at the moment. Speaking of cats, I gotta say the correcting cat/misconception mutt framing is very cute, and it almost broke my heart finding out the origin of that orange spiritual feline. I'm having a blast reading about stats, who would've thunk it?
I am enjoying the book, which I would never have imagined! I am not afraid of statistics anymore.
Andy Field's "Discovering Statistics" is the go-to series for students (and instructors) seeking a comprehensive and accessible statistics text. His humorous take on statistical topics is especially welcome and engaging for students.
Excellent and clear introduction to statistics for those students with some familiarity with SPSS. Will be very useful for those students who undertake quantitative studies as part of their master's work.
Lively descriptions, creative examples
Field's textbook provides an ideal amount of theoretical detail and clearcut examples for undergraduates, who can progressively expand their "hands on" data analysis skills with SPSS.
