    1 thought on “Discovering Statistics Using R”

    1. This is not your average book on stats - this is literature! There are very few books that made me laugh so hard and helped me learn so much.

    2. I was a former math-hater-turned-math-poser before I read this book. Have you ever had a textbook that you ENJOYED reading? Nope?That's because you've never read anything by Andy Field. My book took it's sweet time to ship to my house last year (when I took statistics and used the book), so I flipped through my friend's copy in the meantime. I was captivated by it that I checked about 27 times a day to see if the tracking information had changed. When it FINALLY arrived, my first read through w [...]

    3. Everything was super clear in the book, but near the end the chapters started getting difficult. I had some trouble understanding bits at the end of the MANOVA chapter, and I had to give up on the section about Exploratory Factor Analysis completely. After that, things just didn't feel as concrete to me.Overall pretty damn good and clear considering how much content there is in the book. I'm glad I choose this one to read.

    4. When I saw Discovering Statistics Using R on my class reading list, I died a little bit inside. It’s not the topic, merely the author. I had horrific flashbacks to Discovering Statistics Using IBM SPSS Statistics. Needless to say, I was not looking forward to more of Andy Field’s juvenile ‘humour’. My reaction to this book, was much like my reaction to the SPSS book when it was on my reading list at undergraduate level – the fact it seems to be aimed at teenage boys prevented me from f [...]

    5. Although I was not entirely thrilled that I had to read it at first (I decided to take a statistical analysis module that involves using R Commander), it quickly became my bible! For someone that didn't do A Level maths, it was easy to follow, especially when relating the maths to the coding in R! Plus, it was written with a light-hearted tone that took away from the contents daunting nature. Sometimes it made me cringe, but I think that was the intention, to make degree level statisticsfun?

    6. Libro strepitoso di statistica sperimentale con l'ausilio del software open source R.Una penna esilarante, dalla teoria centrale del limite alla GLM, all'analisi multivariata di varianza passando per gli studi fattoriali e a tutti i test parametrici e non parametrici. Esempi divertentissimi e accurata disamina di tutti i test statistici a partire dalla regressione multipla, una bibbia irriverente e competentissima per un grande docente.Persino l'assunto di sfericitá e la PCA con tutta l'analisi [...]

    7. The first few chapters summarizing statistics are great, but then when the book gets to the R environment in chapter 3, things get complicated. I stopped there as I was spending too much time dealing with errors in entering commands. I wondered if it was worth the time and effort to learn R when SPSS is available and makes analyzing much easier. I decided to stick with SPSS.

    8. By far this is my favorite statistics book for SPSS ( especially when I am not a fan of statistics), easy to comprehend and it is actually step-by-step kinda book. the author got a website where he also posts some solutions and videos of how to preform some of the tests.

    9. If you want to learn statistics and how to apply it using R this is one of the best resources you'll ever find. Andy Field was able to make statistics funny and entertaining

    10. Very readable and engaging intro to statistics and R programming. Uses examples from psychology research, but applicable to other fields too.
