David Howell writes in a fairly easy-to-follow manner and is decent at explaining statistical concepts-- not great, however: he slips into over-complication of a few ideas while flippantly running over others that could use more thorough consideration. As a result, the book alternately feels as though it were written for undergraduates and/or statisticians beyond my own abilities. I don't feel that I personally got much out of it.

His methods, theoretical opinions, and variable designations diffe
This is another of those textbooks where my three star rating can be perceived as deceiving.

It is a good statistical book, I cannot deny that, yet the focus was upon the SPSS factors – and such is not what I was looking for from this book. I wanted information about what was happening not how to do it on the computer, and such a thing meant it wasn’t as beneficial as other books. However, it is useful if such is what you’re looking for.

It covers almost all the topics on basic as well as advance statistics. But I do feel the explanation could have been easier. The examples provided were with large numbers and it becomes difficult to understand those.

Best statistics textbook out there. Very accessible in terms of formulations and the logic behind them. And, yes, I was nerdy enough to read it cover to cover
