Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This text speaks statistics in a psychologist's language. It avoids mathematical rigour and equations and eases the reader into the unfamiliar territory of statistical methodology with the more familiar map of a relaxed conversational style. This approach should be particularly appealing for people from a non-numerate background who are interested in exploring the potential of what statistics can do to help them understand their data."
Peter Watson, University of Cambridge

"Many psychology students are scared of statistics. In Easy Statistics in Psychology Mark Forshaw attempts to demystify the most common and useful statistics in psychology and make them accessible and perhaps even cuddly. Mark has taught statistics to many undergraduates and it shows, particularly in his use of helpful analogies and his insight into the common, but rarely discussed, errors students make in data entry and in interpretation of the complex output from statistical packages. This book nicely complements other more advanced or technical texts. Most psychology undergraduates will find it helpful; for some it may be a God send."
Derek Johnston, Professor in Psychology, University of Aberdeen
