This book was a supplemental material I used with and an amazing statistical research consultant who is famous in NYC to do my dissertation. By the way the consultant is also an author and I recommend his materials too as resources. For example, please see Research Pathways by William M. Bannon, Jr. The whole process really came together and made my dissertation a breeze to do!
The book is excellent, however it will only get 1 star due to the poor customer service Barnes and Noble has. As a member you're entitled to express free shipping. My book was sent regular mail, and customer service was stubborn enough not to acknowledge the mistake that was made. According to UPS, the estimated delivery date is 10/2. The book was picked up on the 23rd. Customer service tried to convince me that 2 to 3 business days will be the 27th (that is when UPS will deliver to USPS, not my home address). Although the books are great, I am completely disappointed in the customer service provided by B&N. Corporate please choose your reps wisely.
