Statistics for Research Design

While musing about the details of the design of an experiment, I came across a website where Colin Robson's classic Experiment, Design and Statistics in Psychology (3rd edition) can be downloaded.

This is such a lovely book. "I did not think it was possible to write an introduction to statistics which was positively entertaining, but Colin Robson has succeeded" writes one B.M.F. in the editorial foreword. I could not agree more.

Highly recommended for anyone who does experiments in the social sciences. Download the separate chapters as PDFs at and enjoy!
