Reviews

"Ultimately, math is a language, and Jeff Gill's new book is a comprehensive guide to its grammar, syntax, and vocabulary. The book covers essential topics for advanced social science research and will be an excellent teaching, reference, and self-study tool." --Scott Desposato, University of California, San Diego "The body of topics that Gill covers is both appropriate and desirable for any primer in mathematics. The use of substantive examples is really outstanding, and makes this a uniquely attractive commodity for political science faculty who would be teaching a mathematical research/methods class over the course of a semester." --Alan Wiseman, Ohio State University
