This concise, easy-to-understand and highly visual book helps students to understand the principles behind the many statistical practices. This text helps students to build a mental map to enable them to work their way through tests and procedures with a better level of understanding (and ultimately feel more confident and get better grades). Statistical analysis will also be covered in the book in the same simple-to-follow way, without messy details or complicated formulae. However, this approach does not lead to simple understanding. Instead it allows students to really grasp how to use, and be creative with, statistics.

'This book is great. It is clear and accessible, yet comprehensive and integrated. Students can make use of it at any level of their education because it is layered or you can skim for the essentials or delve into the depths. A fabulous addition to the market.!' - Rebecca Owens, University of Sunderland


'I love the fact that the book is so concisely and clearly written, yet with sufficiently detailed and with great suggestions for further reading. For me, this makes it the preferred statistics book; easy to approach and to keep in regular use!' - Milja-Leea Bergenheim, University of Stirling
