In a straightforward and easy-to-understand format, the authors provide readers with a plethora of freely available and robust resources and examples that are applicable to a wide variety of behavioral and social science disciplines, including social work, psychology, and physical and occupational therapy.

Zeitlin and Auerbach completed an excellent introductory statistics textbook. The step-by-step instructions on how to complete basic descriptive and inferential statistics using R are simple to follow and understand. It is also a good book for people who are knowledgeable in Excel and want to find a statistical software program that is compatible with Excel data analysis and interpretations." * Serge Lee, PhD, Social Work Research Professor, Division of Social Work, California State University, Sacramento *
A free platform on which cutting-edge statistical methods are increasingly implemented, R is the software of the future. It can, however, be daunting for social workers and others in the human services. No more. Zeitlin and Auerbach make it easy-they provide a unique introductory statistics text built around easily understood step-by-step classroom-tested instructions for using R. What is more, they do this in an engaging conversational style and provide a wide range of excellent resources, including video links, datasets relevant to the human services, downloadable R scripts, a glossary, and chapter exercises." * John G. Orme, PhD, MSW, Professor, College of Social Work, University of Tennessee, Knoxville *
