### Supplements

This book turned my hatred of stats and SPSS into love.

**MSc in Applied Quantitative Methods**

I love it! It's the first text I've come across that has been written in such a captivating way. There's humor, tons of information, and awesome resources both within and on the companion website. Kudos to Prof. Field!

**Harvard University**

I also appreciate how the author made the text interesting to read, but the content is rich enough to provide readers good knowledge on how to draw insights from stats and data. Also, it provides a lot of practical guides for reporting results and findings for research paper. Can't wait to take a deeper dive into the text

**Harvard University**

I never thought I would find a statistics textbook amusing but somehow our text pulls it off. I also appreciated the online supplementary tools provided by the publisher. They provide a good synthesis of each of the chapters and some easy options to review

**Harvard University**

I really really love the book, it's the main reason why I'm not curled up in bed with my cats sobbing in fear at the moment. Speaking of cats, I gotta say the correcting cat/misconception mutt framing is very cute, and it almost broke my heart finding out the origin of that orange spiritual feline. I'm having a blast reading about stats, who would've thunk it?

**Harvard University**

I am enjoying the book, which I would never have imagined! I am not afraid of statistics anymore.

**World Council for Gifted and Talented Children**

The book explains all the types of statistical tests that bachelor students in political science need for their thesis research in a straightforward manner. It takes a hands-on approach to work with statistical software and explains in detail all the steps necessary to run an analysis and interpret the results. I decided to assign this book to my course because I am confident that students will get all the information they need for their research projects from this volume without having to buy several methods books.

**Department of Political Science & Public Administration, Free University, Amsterdam**

This book is a wonderful resource to help students with analysis using the spss software

**Psychology, Nottingham University**

Very complete title and most of the chapters are going to be part of the topics covered in class

**Business Administration, Universidad de Monterrey**

Andy Field's "Discovering Statistics" is the go-to series for students (and instructors) seeking a comprehensive and accessible statistics text. His humorous take on statistical topics is especially welcome and engaging for students.
