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.
