"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."
