The author made several attempts to lighten the subject matter of this book with humor. He failed most of them, like that turbo-geek in high school who could never get the timing or delivery down right on his jokes. Still, Heiman (must have gotten a lot of flak in school) went into enough detail on the calculation concepts to at least make them graspable.

I have to be honest, I and many of my fellow students disliked this class with a passion. This book did not help much with understanding the material. Not impressed at all. Defiantly will not keep this one either will I ever want to take this class again.

A very basic introduction to statistics. Good if you are learning these stats for the first time or for a quick refresher.

A decent statistics book with very good explanation. However, I do wish there was more examples regarding the field of psychology.
