“This book introduces statistical methods to students while, at the same time, walking them through the process by which to apply those methods to real-world problems using Stata. This is something that is severely lacking in methods texts at this time.”

**Lewis University**

“This is so far one of the best introductions to statistics and Stata that I have seen, particularly for my students who really need a bit of hand holding. This will likely make it less intimidating for students with no exposure to statistics.”

**Lehigh University**

“I found the style of the book very sound for today’s student. The style wasn’t overly formal nor was the material presented in an overly complicated fashion. The author kept to a somewhat casual, approachable writing style that should be perfect for the modern college student.”

**Ashford University**

“This is a much needed book that encompasses research methods through to the analysis stage and reporting writing.”
