This book explains how to conduct most SPSS procedures and how to interpret the output, as well as the basic statistical theory behind each procedure. It is extraordinarily clear and concise with many tables and figures. Among the many SPSS books published independently of SPSS, Inc., it is the best. It is very economical compared to the SPSS, Inc. published manuals. I use Kinnear's text as a supplemental text to teach both graduate and advanced undergraduate statistics course in psychology. I also have strongly recommended it to many colleagues and mentees.
