- education and sport sciences online datasets and testbanks with enhanced ones for psychology, business and management and the health sciences make the book even more relevant to a wider range of subjects across the social sciences and where statistics is taught to a cross-disciplinary audience.

Major updates to the Fourth Edition:

- an overhauled and expanded testbank of multiple-choice questions for instructors to further test and monitor students' progress.

"Field makes concerted efforts to provide statistical tools in a very lighthearted fashion by throwing in humor, with great success [...] Very useful, valuable, and interesting. Highly recommended."
- D.V. Chopra, Choice Magazine, 2006-02-01

"Aimed at a wide student audience, the objectives are to explain statistics theory and practice in a clear, engaging, user-friendly way, and the book does this well. For the purist, some of the phrasing might be loose and the theory light, but the book works well as an introductory text for its intended audience."
- Andrew Millard, Research Officer of Greater Glasgow NHS 2006-02-16

"This text is notable for the breadth of statistics covered and for seamless meshing this content with SPSS."
- Eileen Gigliotti 2007-05-31
