The Science Game draws an analogy between science and a news service: scientific researchers/reporters collect, check and analyse messages in order to draw conclusions. Scientific theorists/editors help define target areas of investigation and provide context and interpretation for news stories; they show us how the news fits in to the big picture and tell us what it means. This analogy helps students to identify sources of variance in a report, and to reveal how the preferences of editors/theorists shape which questions are asked and which interpretations are given. This text aims to educate readers so that they become discriminating consumers of science.

..".articulates a perspective of science and the design of research that is so simple and clear that anyone should be able to do straightforward psychological research after reading it. This book, an important rewrite of a classic in the psychological science/research design biz, is highly readable and teachable...very clearly written, is not overly long, has a lively conversational and engaging tone, deals with the essentials, and articulates a vision of methodology that allows through the door a range of approaches that [other] books might rule out."--PsycCritiques
