"Authoritative yet, clear, succinct, and engaging. It covers all the relevant concepts, and it covers them well."-- Anthony W. Hoskin, PhD.
"The specific CJ examples help students to connect the material to something that is real. It becomes more than just a math problem and instead they see it as a way to answer a specific research question in the field. This book does that better than any others I've seen."-- Nicole L. Smolter
"I have already adopted this book, and I plan to continue using it. I have used at least four other statistics books over the years, and this one is superior."-- Brian Stults
