Review I′ve been using Discovering... with SPSS... for a couple of years & have just updated to the 5th edition. I LOVE chapter 3, and have actually been covering a lot of that material in my class, so it′s nice to have it explicit in the text as well. Jennifer Gutbezahl, Harvard University -- Jennifer Gutbezahl Published On: 2018-09-06 "By the way, has anyone had a chance to look at the text? I love it! It′s the first text I′ve come across that has been written in such a captivating way. There′s humor, tons of information, and awesome resources both within and on the companion website. Kudos to Prof. Field!" Anonymous Student, Harvard University "I never thought I would find a statistics textbook amusing but somehow our text pulls it off. I also appreciated the online supplementary tools provided by the publisher. If you haven′t seen them yet, you should check them out. They provide a good synthesis of each of the chapters and some easy options to review." Anonymous Student, Harvard University "I get started on the text and can′t agree more with you on how the book is. I also appreciate how the author made the text interesting to read, but the content is rich enough to provide readers good knowledge on how to draw insights from stats and data. Also, it provides a lot of practical guides for reporting results and findings for research paper. Can′t wait to take a deeper dive into the text!" Anonymous Student, Harvard University -- Students of Jennifer Gutbezahl ― Harvard University Published On: 2018-09-06 About the Author Andy Field is Professor of Quantitative Methods at the University of Sussex. He has published widely (100+ research papers, 29 book chapters, and 17 books in various editions) in the areas of child anxiety and psychological methods and statistics. His current research interests focus on barriers to learning mathematics and statistics. He is internationally known as a statistics educator. He has written several widely used statistics textbooks including Discovering Statistics Using IBM SPSS Statistics (winner of the 2007 British Psychological Society book award), Discovering Statistics Using R, and An Adventure in Statistics (shortlisted for the British Psychological Society book award, 2017; British Book Design and Production Awards, primary, secondary and tertiary education category, 2016; and the Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers Award for innovation in publishing, 2016), which teaches statistics through a fictional narrative and uses graphic novel elements. He has also written the adventr and discovr packages for the statistics software R that teach statistics and R through interactive tutorials. His uncontrollable enthusiasm for teaching statistics to psychologists has led to teaching awards from the University of Sussex (2001, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019), the British Psychological Society (2006) and a prestigious UK National Teaching fellowship (2010). He′s done the usual academic things: had grants, been on editorial boards, done lots of admin/service but he finds it tedious trying to remember this stuff. None of them matter anyway because in the unlikely event that you′ve ever heard of him it′ll be as the ′Stats book guy′. In his spare time, he plays the drums very noisily in a heavy metal band, and walks his cocker spaniel, both of which he finds therapeutic.
