Pelham's text avoids the heavy scientific jargon commonly found in research methods texts. Instead, "Conducting Research in Psychology" features friendly prose, interesting examples, and delightful anecdotes that your students will enjoy. Pelham uses recurring examples throughout the text to illustrate chapter concepts. This brief book also includes hands-on activities that involve learning by doing, methodology exercises that encourage students to use their intuitions to understand research methods, and methodology problems that teach students to apply basic research principles to novel problems.

Review:

"Pelham has written a book that shows just how intuitive and just how delicious science can be. It sparkles, illuminates, and inspires at every turn! Pelham and Blanton don't just tell us 'how' research is done-they help us to see 'why' it is done that way. If I wanted my grandmother to appreciate the scientific method, this is the book I'd give her."
