The best-selling Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics is now in its Fifth Edition. Continuing its hallmark use of humor and common sense, this text helps students develop an understanding of an often intimidating and difficult subject with an approach that is informative, personable, and clear. Author Neil J. Salkind takes students through various statistical procedures, beginning with a brief historical introduction to statistics, correlation and graphical representation of data, and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. The book provides examples using SPSS and includes reviews of measurement topics, such as reliability, validity, and also introductory non-parametric statistics. With more examples than ever before, the new edition offers a new Real World Stats feature at the end of each chapter. In addition, an enhanced interactive eBook edition (available spring 2014) features animated chapter introductions, quick quizzes, video clips, and more.  The Fifth Edition is also the basis for the Excel edition for the book of the same name.

About the Author:

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.

Review:

"Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics is definitely the right book for people who have to overcome that familiar anxious feeling when opening a standard statistics book and who having finally managed to do so are still not able to make much sense of it all. The book by Salkind is easy and pleasant to read and one that hardly needs any pre-knowledge of the field to be able to follow the author's train of thoughts. Salkind has managed to bring statistics home to people who hate statistics or thought they did."

"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 "

"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 "

"The author has a wonderful way of taking complex material and presenting it to an already anxiety-filled audience in a manner that not only sets students' nerves at ease but facilitates their learning to apply the material in useful ways. This text should be required reading in all beginning-level stats classes if for no other reason than to build confidence in the students."--Christopher J. Maglio

"There is no extraneous information in the text. It's what students need to know, presented in a way that does not intimidate."--Adriana Buliga-Stoian

"The word statistics is often seen as a nasty word to social scientists but Salkind deals with that and makes it somewhat enjoyable for the students and an absolute joy for the instructors."--Dr. David F. Nicholson

"It is easy to follow and great for learning . . . My students absolutely love the book."--Soomi Lee

"I truly think this is the best statistics book I have encountered."--Daniel R. Block
