"...Anderson's latest book is truly remarkable. It is a graduate level text with the first 12 chapters covering core principles and the remaining 9 chapters serving as an excellent reference on numerous statistical methods and design issues....The book captivates your attention as topics are addressed from a perspective you've never entertained when studying statistics and experimental design."

"Unlike most statistics texts, this one strives to be both educational and polemical--the author wants most graduate programs teaching statistics to be more empirically based (no new claim) so that future psychologists will acquire sounder research judgment. Novelty lies, however, in the integrated approach Anderson offers for developing such judgment....This book is clearly the culmination of a career devoted to rigorous reliance on the experimental method, meticulous and thoughtful planning of research, and a delight in solving cognitive-behavioral puzzles."
