I found the plot rather scattered and confusing. Half the characters are Greek, which makes it really hard to follow what’s going on and who is who. In particular, I found Pearson, Spearman and LeRegression to be somewhat underdeveloped, even though one might argue they are central to the story. However, I wouldn’t hesitate recommending this book to any student of human relations, since it has a lot of instructive material to offer here.

Easy to read and understand, easy help on homework problems on odd numbers (let's you check figures), simplifies statistics (however, I would've preferred that the book actually uses the actual signs of the formula rather than use letters in place of a formula). Overall, its a great book and would definitely recommend it.
