About the Author

Xiaofeng Steven Liu is an Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina.


"This book extends earlier landmark texts by adding sample-size estimation for multilevel and longitudinal designs, meta-analysis, and structural-equation modeling. It is written thoughtfully and understandably. Readers will benefit enormously from the inclusion of computer code (in R, SAS and SPSS) for conducting the power analyses described. I recommend the book very highly to any researcher who wants to design research in the social sciences." - John B. Willett, Harvard University, USA "The author skillfully blends simple explanations of core concepts with more advanced material in a way that will make the work attractive to a range of readers in psychology and related disciplines. This text will be useful for postgraduate quantitative methods courses and for researchers. The coverage - from t tests through to multilevel models and SEM - is impressive. I found the examples of R, SPSS, and SAS code invaluable." - Thom Baguley, Nottingham Trent University, UK
"This is a long-awaited, comprehensive book on power analysis after Cohen's (1988) seminal book. The updated content accompanied by sample computer code is well suited for quantitative researchers in the social and behavioral sciences." - Wei Pan, Duke University, USA "This book provides a more comprehensive treatment of power analysis than any other work. ... This is likely to be the "go to" book for more complex designs. ... I found the writing style clear. ... The primary audience for this book would be all investigators who seek external funding for their work." - Warren W. Tryon, Fordham University, USA "This book would be good for departments of psychology, sociology, social work, nursing and public health. Most of the PhD programs in these departments have an advanced research methods course that could use this book. ... The Cohen book has been the standard in the field for over 20 years. ... This book would make a very nice update on a classic." - Jay Maddock, University of Hawaii, USA "This book is] a valuable extension beyond what is currently provided by other books on power. This book would contribute significantly to the field, most notably by covering the advanced and more complex techniques. ...Liu and his work are well known in this field....[This] book...could serve as the primary text for a ...course on power. ...This book would basically have the field to itself." - Geoff Cumming, La Trobe University, Australia
