The idea of combining methods and stats as Jackson is compelling enough that I used the text in a year-long stats and methods course. Unfortunately, the text has an abundance of errors, some egregious ones, that makes me wonder how they got to the fourth edition. For example, the formula for Pearson's r on p. 162 is wrong. Answers given for end of chapter exercises are sometimes incorrect. The topic is challenging enough for social science students without imposing on them avoidable complications arising from poor editing.
I contacted the publisher twice but only got a reply from my sales rep. No one on the editing staff followed through to correct the errors. I am looking for a new text.
