“I am delighted to see a book of this kind. It fills a gap in conventional statistics books, which devote just one chapter to graphical displays. This book helps students make the connection between research questions and graphical approaches in a way that no other statistics book has done.”
"The comprehensive treatment of an important topic, including 'walk-throughs' of how to produce a graph of each type, is well done. The chapter on deception brings in coverage of a useful and important topic as well."
"It presents a comprehensive list of graphs available in SPSS, with details about how to construct and interpret them."
"It's easy to read, and provides plenty of examples and practice so students can get the concepts."
“This book provides excellent descriptions and guidance on the use of graphical images for data presentation. These are necessary tools for all students pursuing graduate degrees with a research component attached.”
“I like the approach that argues graphs are one way to understand data and answer pertinent questions. This is a very useful entrée for the many ‘number-phobic’ students we encounter in social work.”
“I don’t know of a comparable book. There are many excellent books on SPSS statistical procedures but this is the first one on graphics that I’ve seen which is why I was so excited to review it...The level of detail and the number of examples are key strengths. My impression that overall it is one of a kind is the biggest strength.”
It is useful to teach students how to use SPSS to create graphs. Supplements the main textbook very well.
I will adopt this book in Research Project course for students to do pre-liminary quantitative analysis of data. The table at the back specifying which graph to use for which data is very useful for my students.
I will adopt in another course: Research Project for students to do pre-liminary quantitative analysis of data. Especially the table at the back specifying which graph to use for which data is very useful for my students
This book is an excellent tutorial for students that are anxious about using SPSS for graph development.
The content is very useful for dissertation students, but the focus on graphical presentation is too narrow for it to qualify as essential reading.
This is a really excellent guide for students in how to prepare graphs using SPSS which students often struggle with
An excellent description of methods in SPSS to help students understand their data!
A superb additional text for students wishing to improve their SPSS skills.
This book is amazing, it introduce new ways of graphs that I didn't saw before but I prefer it with colors... may be for next edition. however the idea of non-color book for publication is brilliant.
I never received a copy of this book, despite notifying you several times.
Essential for any novice researcher, it provides a step by step guide on using SPSS and building graphs.
A useful book that will help students generate appropriate graphs for their projects.
It’s a very useful Book.
