Discovering Statistics Using SPSS
Written in his vivid and entertaining style, Andy Field provides students with everything they need to understand, use and report statistics—at every level—in the Third Edition of Discovering Statistics Using SPSS. Retaining the strong pedagogy from previous editions, he makes statistics meaningful by including playful examples from everyday student life (among other places), creating a gateway into the often intimidating world of statistics. In the process, he presents an opportunity for students to ground their knowledge of statistics through the use of SPSS.

I am so thankful that my stats class used this book instead of any of the myriad other dry textbooks on the topic. I credit Andy Field with getting me through my PhD coursework and quantitative dissertation, due to his creative teaching style, enjoyable examples, thorough explanations, and probably most of all, the amazingly useful statistic selection tool on the last page of the book. Thank you, Dr. Field, for creating this amazing book. Long Live Rock 'n' Roll!
I love this book! I always refer to it when im stuck with something, or have forgotten how to do some calculations. It is so quirky, upbeat, and original - unlike the boring and dry textbooks. It really helps you learn learn, and not learn for an exam.
