Salkind, Neil J. : University of Kansas
"I liked its humorous approach, which indeed helps to reduce statistical anxiety. The design of the book is inviting and relaxing, which is a plus. The writing style is great and the presentation is appropriate for my students. A fun and well-written book, it is easy to read and use, and presents statistics in a user-friendly way. . . . I would recommend it for sure."
--Dr. Minjuan Wang, Assistant Professor of Educational Technology, San Diego State University
"Salkind's book is in a class by itself. It is easily the best book of its kind that I have come across. I enthusiastically recommend it for any one interested in the subject, and even (and especially) for those who aren't!"
--Professor Russ Shafer-Landau, University of Wisconsin
"Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics really makes students learn and enjoy statistics and research in general. Students especially like the Ten Commandments and Internet sites."
--Professor Valerie Janesick, School of Education, Roosevelt University
"Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics is definitely the right book for people who have to overcome that familiar anxious feeling when opening a standard statistics book and who having finally managed to do so are still not able to make much sense of it all. The book by Salkind is easy and pleasant to read and one that hardly needs any pre-knowledge of the field to be able to follow the author's train of thoughts. Salkind has managed to bring statistics home to people who hate statistics, or thought they did."
--From a review appearing in Statistical Methods in Medical Research (Arnold Publications) Dr. Andrea Winkler, Maudsley and Bethlem Hospital, London, U.K.
