Statistics for the Social Sciences: A General Linear Model Approach

Statistics for the Social Sciences: A General Linear Model Approach was published by Cambridge University Press in December 2017. It is a textbook designed for undergraduate social science majors taking a one-semester introductory statistics course. Packed with examples from all the social sciences, it provides an accessible tour through descriptive statistics, visual models, z-tests, one-sample t-tests, paired and unpaired samples t-tests, analysis of variance (ANOVA), correlation and regression, and one- and two-variable chi-squared tests. Every chapter features screenshots that give students a step-by-step guide to conducting each of these procedures in Microsoft Excel and SPSS. Order from, Google Books, or Cambridge University Press.

Update: Read about the upcoming second edition (expected in January 2021) at this blog post.

Coming Soon From Cambridge University Press!

My next book is tentatively called In the Know: Debunking 35 Myths About Human Intelligence. This is a book about intelligence targeted at non-experts, including students, journalists, interested laymen, and social scientists with expertise in other areas. Each chapter discusses one common, but incorrect, belief about intelligence and explains the truth and the scientific evidence on the topic. (See this blog post for a list of chapter topics.) The book also includes an introduction that provides context and an overview of intelligence and a conclusion discussing unresolved issues. Expected publication date is October 2020. In the meantime, you can read blog posts related to the book.
