Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.
