Otherwise, the book is very readable and informative. The ending of each chapter includes nice summaries, multiple choice review questions, and discussion questions. This is esoteric material, but the authors take their time to flesh out these conceptual ideas.
If you are looking for a textbook for a Stats/Research Methods course, this might be a good book to use for the first semester. If you are looking for a purely Methods-based course, Introduction to Behavioral Research Methods (6th Edition) might be a little better suited.
Maybe I'll just skim it and peruse the chapter summaries for the rest of the semester.
