Utilizing the personable and clear approach that made Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics a bestseller, Neil J. Salkind focuses on the use of Excel as the primary analytic tool in the Second Edition of Statistics for People Who Think They Hate Statistics – Excel 2007 Edition. Salkind walks readers through various statistical procedures, beginning with correlations and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. Throughout the book, he reveals the full capabilities of Excel, beginning with Part I, which is an introduction to Excel to the end, where he presents an extensive overview of Excel functionality.

Key Features of the Second Edition:

  • Reflects all Excel material based on Excel 2007 including all screen grabs
  • Moves the reliability and validity chapter forward
  • Offers more examples throughout the text and more end of chapter exercises
  • Includes new and updated icons to explore certain topics in detail
  • Presents the answers to the Time to Practice exercises to follow in chapter rather than at end of book
  • Contains an Appendix detailing the differences between Excel 2003 to Excel 2007
  • Incorporates the use of the new Data Analysis Toolpak option
  • Covers formulas and functions in more detail

Praise for Neil Salkind and Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics

“Salkind’s book is in a class by itself. It is easily the best book of its kind that I have come across. I enthusiastically recommend it for anyone interested in the subject, and even (and especially) for those who aren’t!” -Russ Shafer-Landau, Professor, University of Wisconsin

“Your book Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics has cleared up confusion and partial understandings that I have had for years. It is a must for anyone beginning or continuing their journey in this science. I love it, and will use it for all of the foreseeable future.” -Ronald A. Straube, Performance Improvement Coordinator, Mission Regional Medical Center

“Salkind’s examples assist with the application of key concepts and tests. The book is easy to read due to the way information is presented-such as the Tech Talk, Things to Remember, the Key to Difficulty Index, the various 10 lists, the icons, and the illustrations-including the cartoons. Even the title brings laughter to students-and humor can be a great antidote to stress!” -Mary Beth Zeni, Assistant Professor, Florida State School of Nursing

“I am a doctoral student and we simply love your book.” -Marisol Miller, Ph D candidate, Arizona State University

“I just wanted to thank you for writing such a great book and for allowing people like me who are flung in at the deep end to stand a chance of understanding the basics and allowing us to get over the great fear of statistics! Thanks very much.” -Joanna Paolinelli, MS Student in Developmental Psychology

"...offers a slow-paced, entertaining introduction to the topic...begins with a discussion of the 'language' of statistics, then goes on to cover both descriptive and inferential statistics."

    Doesn't work on mobile devices

    I purchased this $60 textbook for my research class and didn't realize it can only be read from a computer. This is not very convenient, since I use my iPad as my laptop and don't have easy access to a PC. I wish I had noticed this before placing this order.
