WINNER OF THE 2007 BRITISH PSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY BOOK AWARD 2007 `It is noteworthy that after I used some of the illustrations and mentioned the book in class, most students went and bought a copy.
Their final papers were heavily "Field-referenced"! That is the best endorsement one can give to a text' - Journal of Advanced Nursing `The wide range of statistical techniques covered combined with good accompanying background explanations, communicated in a relaxed, affable style, make this book a useful addition to the bookshelves of both practitioners and teachers of statistics alike in the social sciences' - Peter Watson, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge and Chair of ASSESS, Independent European Group of SPSS Users `The Second Edition of Andy Field's Discovering Statistics Using SPSS is an excellent book and a valuable addition to the teaching of statistics in the behavioral sciences.
The title of the book accurately reflects the approach taken.
This is not simply a primer on how to use SPSS, but is a very good statistics text using SPSS as a vehicle for illustrating and expanding on the statistical content of the book.
At the same time it also serves as a manual for SPSS, and has taught me things that I had not known about the software.
One advantage of the text is that it is not tied specifically to the latest version of SPSS.
Although the examples use version 12.0, there are many references to the difference the students will find if they are using an earlier version.
