Interpreting Basic Statistics, 8th Edition

by Zealure C. Holcomb, Keith S. Cox

"Routledge acquired the eighth edition of Interpreting Basic Statistics in-process from a small US press in October 2016 – I had joined the company in February of that year. Revising author Keith S. Cox showed supreme kindness and patience to me as we learned together about the different ways things needed to be done at T&F. I knew next to nothing about quantitative research; Keith answered all my extremely basic questions about not only his work on the book, but also about his teaching and the subject area. I love how dedicated he is to his students, helping them to become proficient in a subject that they often struggle with due to ‘math fear.’ He’s done a brilliant job on bringing Holcomb’s long-established text up to date to keep it relevant for modern teaching and student needs. I am very much looking forward to working with him on the ninth edition!" - Hannah Shakespeare,Senior Commissioning Editor, Research Methods
