An Adventure in Statistics: The Reality Enigma

If you are undertaking a research module or degree requiring statistics, then this textbook will be a valuable addition to your library.

Andy Field takes his readers on a futuristic adventure to solve the mystery of Zack Slade’s vanishing girlfriend, and find out what is going on at the corporation JIG:SAW. This comprehensive textbook teaches basic statistics through story. Zack discovers how statistics can be used to help find the answers he needs.

The book walks readers through basic statistics, modern approaches to theory testing, fitting linear models and multivariate analysis. The use of the story to pose problems and explain the statistical basis and solution is clever and effective.

It provides key point summaries, exercises and a good range of online support for students and lecturers, through the publisher website as well as Andy Field’s YouTube channel.
