"I have been a fan of Hinton's Statistics Explained from its first edition and I still think this is one of the best introductory level texts on the market. The combination of clear explanation, simple worked examples and friendly style make an excellent choice for introductory classes in psychology and related disciplines." - Thom Baguley, Nottingham Trent University, UK "This book really delivers on its title: It provides in-depth explanations of the reasoning behind statistical analyses. It gives students a solid understanding of some of the most important current statistical analyses, with all their conditions and pitfalls. That is exactly what is needed. ... I have used Statistics Explained in both graduate and undergraduate introduction courses to statistics, and will definitely continue using it. In the 3rd edition, I am happy to see improvements over the already excellent 2nd edition, for example in the explanation of confidence intervals. There is a great new chapter on samples and statistical inference, and a postscript that makes an excellent point about biases in the field as a whole." - Katrin Erk, The University of Texas at Austin, USA "I am using Statistics Explained to demystify statistics in applied fields and for this it is doing a perfect job. All essential statistical approaches are covered in an easy to understand way and the used examples provide confirmation of the learned theory." - Reyer Zwiggelaar, Aberystwyth University, UK
