# Straightforward Statistics

- Chieh-Chen Bowen - Cleveland State University, USA

**Straightforward Statistics**is written in plain language and connects material in a clear, logical manner to help students across the social and behavioral sciences develop a “big picture” understanding of foundational statistics. Each new chapter is purposefully connected with the previous chapter for a gradual accrual of knowledge from simple to more complex concepts—this effective, cumulative approach to statistics through logical transitions eases students into statistics and prepares them for success in more advanced quantitative coursework and their own research.

“This book does an admirable job of presenting the rationale for the formulas, which should help the student understand the material more deeply. Additionally, the examples used by the author do a nice job of helping students walk through the process of applying the formulas to address research hypotheses.”

**Case Western Reserve University**

“I have been impressed with the author’s ability to explain statistical constructs in a straightforward manner.”
