"Let us first state what this book is not about. It does not strive to replace a standard sociological research textbook, it does not offer a compete arsenal of methods and techniques, and last but not least, it does not aspire to teach the reader statistics. In this sense, its goal is far more modest: to understand the logic of research and comprehend the meaning of statistical operations." - taken from the book's foreword by the author. Disman presents the usually tedious sociological methods with humour and a view from above, and rather than being concerned with statistics itself, he is concerned with "the ability to understand the real meaning of our data."
Fourth edition of the successful textbook.
