'Statistics for the Health Sciences engagingly presents the key analytic issues that students and professionals need to understand in the most accessible and vivid way possible. Full of real examples and practical exercises, the book successfully avoids getting bogged down with complex maths and formulae' -

Dennis Howitt at Loughborough University

The chapter overviews, absence of statistical formulae and use of appropriate examples and student exercises make this a very 'hands on' and practical text' -

Merryl E Harvey, Birmingham City University

It provides key Statistical concepts that my students need to succed in their Boistatistics class. They like the non-mathematical approach to explain statistics.

I like the non mathematical approach taken. I think the SPSS exercises will be invaluable for the students. it seems to be an easy read for the beginning student in statistics. I looked at many books and made a decision to go with this one.

**Faculty of health, York University**

An excellent introduction to data handling. Material is explained in a very accessible style, and good examples are utilised to demonstrate ideas. Very useful tests are provided with each chapter, and the companion website allows students to learn in an interactive manner. An excellent addition to the introductory statistics literature.

Hi thank you fo rthe reminder! I had forgotten to review this book and have just done so. At first glance I thought it a bit wordy but then when I had a good look I realised it had alot of useful material and the spss information was very good. I am starting the lectures tomorrow with my second years and I will now recommend this book to them as one they should have on their shelf as a very useful reference for the course and for their future practice.
