"The authors have constructed a manuscript that utilizes real life research questions and takes the reader through a detailed process of how a researcher would construct a study to answer the question, select the appropriate statistics to answer the question, and disseminate the results in how to write up the results/discussion."-- Charles Fountaine
"It outlines the bare necessities of research. It's not full of definitions, it more so teaches students about the application of materials. The book comes across as task-oriented."-- Derrick Bryan
"In our sections of research methods & statistics, students are asked to buy two books (methods + stats). I appreciate that this textbook is able to unite the two domains in such a clear way. This book really stands out as a detailed "field manual" for psychological research, and it's the kind of book that students might be more likely to hang on to for future reference. The integration of SPSS & APA style conventions throughout was nice to see. Also nice to see effect sizes and power analysis show up so students don't have a simple view of null hypothesis statistical tests."-- Ben Denkinger
"I like the combination of the methods and stats. I believe that this book would be beneficial for an advanced research methods/stats class at the undergraduate level. I like that the book provides adequate coverage to case studies and single case research design."-- Erin Fekete
"Some good thorough discussion of aspects of each kind of research and statistical approach. Workbook pretty thorough."-- Kevin E. Lawson
"The simplicity and relevance of the supplemental materials built in to illustrate the concepts are the key strengths of this text."-- Malaika Brown
