Book Description
This Seventh Edition explains in plain English the basic concepts and procedures of statistical analysis and makes a special effort to clarify such topics as the standard deviation, variance interpretation of the correlation coefficient, hypothesis tests, degrees of freedom, p-values, and estimates of effect size.
* Highly interesting and engaging exercises include how standard scores might explain the disappearance of .400 hitters in Major League Baseball, probability calculations that recreate the chillingly high likelihood of the space shuttle Challenger disaster, and a chi-square test of the survival rates of cabin and steerage passengers aboard the Titanic.
* Avoids unnecessary math, computational busy work, and subtle technical distinctions, without sacrificing either accuracy or realism.

Using Multivariate Statistics (5th Edition)
Barbara G. Tabachnick, Linda S. Fidell
0205459382
February 21, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Using Multivariate Statistics provides practical guidelines for conducting numerous types of multivariate statistical analyses. It gives syntax and output for accomplishing many analyses through the most recent releases of SAS, SPSS, and SYSTAT, some not available in software manuals. The book maintains its practical approach, still focusing on the benefits and limitations of applications of a technique to a data set - when, why, and how to do it. Overall, it provides advanced students with a timely and comprehensive introduction to today's most commonly encountered statistical and multivariate techniques, while assuming only a limited knowledge of higher-level mathematics.

Review
A good book has gotten much better. Since the first edition appeared in 1998, Kline's book has been the only one I assign in my SEM course. It easily surpassed its competitors in clarity and accessibility, without sacrificing accuracy and completeness. This new edition is a major upgrade, with substantial reworking of the original chapters to add depth and clarity, as well as new chapters on topics like latent growth curve modeling and hierarchical linear modeling./m-/Paul D. Allison, Department of Sociology, University of Pennsylvania

"An outstanding introduction to SEM, geared toward the beginner in this area. The relaxed, conversational writing style makes access to this complex material pain-free and easy. The book strikes a perfect balance between easy reading and the presentation of technical detail and technical...

Against the Gods : The Remarkable Story of Risk
Peter L. Bernstein
0471121045
September 7, 1996
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
With the stock market breaking records almost daily, leaving longtime market analysts shaking their heads and revising their forecasts, a study of the concept of risk seems quite timely. Peter Bernstein has written a comprehensive history of man's efforts to understand risk and probability, beginning with early gamblers in ancient Greece, continuing through the 17th-century French mathematicians Pascal and Fermat and up to modern chaos theory. Along the way he demonstrates that understanding risk underlies everything from game theory to bridge-building to winemaking.

From Publishers Weekly
Risk management, which assumes that future risks can be understood, measured and to some extent predicted, is the focus of this solid, thoroughgoing history. Probability theory, pioneered by...


Cognitive Ecology

0121619664
Jan 1996
Hardcover

Book Description
Cognitive Ecology identifies the richness of input to our sensory evaluations, from our cultural heritage and philosophies of aesthetics to perceptual cognition and judgment. Integrating the arts, humanities, and sciences, Cognitive Ecology investigates the relationship of perception and cognition to wider issues of how science is conducted, and how the questions we ask about perception influence the answers we find. Part One discusses how issues of the human mind are inseparable from the culture from which the investigations arise, how mind and environment co-define experience and actions, and how culture otherwise influences cognitive function. Part Two outlines how philosophical themes of aesthetics have guided psychological research, and discuss the physical and aesthetic perception of music, film, and art. Part...

Review
"Hancock's wizardly perspective in the preface whets the reader's anticipation of what follows as he weaves a technical tale covering the broad taperstry of human performance. Most chapters are written with overwhelming depth and yet are easy to understand. Although Hancock's volume is not set up as a handbook per se, anyone in or aspiring to the human factors/ergonomics discipline needs to read this book. HF/E practitioners will no doubt find themselves mercilessly marketing their copies of this text for repeated review and reinforcement. Many topics I thought I had mastered earlier are now, through these provocative chapters, being rethought more deeply...

"Powers and Xie present the methods that form the core of contemporary social statistics. It is the first introductory text to cover, in a single volume, models and methods for discrete dependent variables, cross-classifications, and longitudinal data.
