This book is distinguished by the fact that it simplifies some very difficult statistical concepts, using minimal mathematics. The aim is to teach the concepts rather than the mathematical formulae or calculations of data analysis.

'This is the kind of statistics book that I would like to write. Luckily, I don't have to do that now' 'I fully recommend this book as an undergraduate statistics text for those who prefer a minimal maths approach. If you also teach SPSS then coverage of that package is a bonus' 'Here at last is a book which does not over-burden the student with too much maths but which also takes the subject seriously, giving detailed explanations and providing good topic coverage' 'This is a book that can be used throughout the undergraduate career'
Andrew Schofield, University of Birmingham Psychology Learning & Teaching, Volume 4: Issue 1, September 2004
'This clear, concise, step by step approach, without a mathematical formula in sight really does replace the familiar feelings of dread and intimidation, with confidence and motivation to use and understand statistical tests.'
Amazon reviewer, Jan 2002.
For those who think they will struggle with statistics
Statistics without maths is a book aimed at those students of psychology who find statistics books confusing.
The book explains the concepts behind the most commonly used statistical techniques without any confusing formulae.
Students are encouraged in their learning by use of examples, exercises and multiple-choice questions.
The book also takes students through the procedures for analysing data using one of the most commonly used statistical packages (SPSS for Windows).
Additionally, advice is given about which parts of the computer printout are important and how to write up the analyses in an appropriate manner.
