Review:

Introduction to Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology is the third volume in a trilogy. It covers quantitative and qualitative approaches, includes detailed treatment of professional issues such as ethics, and gives insights into detailed aspects of professional research awareness rarely discussed with students.

This is a detailed, practical and modern book that is excellent value for money. In its own right, it is a book many should seriously consider as a core text, but it is even more impressive when seen as the final volume of a trilogy.

John Hegarty, Head of Psychology, Keele University
Times Higher Education Supplement, 2nd December 2005
