# Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics Using R

- Neil J. Salkind
- Leslie A. Shaw - Cornell University, USA

Neil J. Salkind’s bestselling *Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics *has been helping ease student anxiety around an often intimidating subject since it first published in 2000. Now the bestselling SPSS® and Excel® versions are joined by a text for use with the R software, **Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics Using R**. New co-author Leslie A. Shaw carries forward Salkind’s signature humorous, personable, and informative approach as the text guides students in a grounding of statistical basics and R computing, and the application of statistics to research studies. The book covers various basic and advanced statistical procedures, from correlation and graph creation to analysis of variance, regression, non-parametric tests, and more.
