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.
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.
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.

An essential reference for research at Dissertation stage
This is a very good resource for students and teaching
A previous edition of this text is currently used as part of the course I support on our reading list, but will recommended this be updated. This new edition by Andy Field is a brilliant, providing updated and better organised materials and few new chapters.
A previous edition of this text is currently used as part of the course reading list, but will be recommending that this be updated. Andy Field has done it again and brought together a brilliant update with practical resources and materials, with the edition of more of his own brand of unique humour.
Very student friendly, provides a solid understanding of the various analytical techniques used in their respective methodologies.
Great for everybody who is still working with SPSS. Answers a lot of questions and is very informative and well written!
Very detailed - so works as a reference book.
I have added it to my recommended reading list.
A good book with well structured content, helpful explanations and summaries. Fairly comprehensive reference book for anyone working in the statistics
Andy Field makes statistics easy to understand, some great application to everyday situations
Great, very good and very understandable and all important aspects are taken into account, e.g. interaction effects! Excellent!
The book contains the most current knowledge of the statistical methods, which is essential for my Master's degree students. I have used previous editions of this book and it has been very accessible to students.
