This book has little about using SPSS (the very basics). It has much, much more about simple statistics. I bought the book to learn SPSS, not statistics. If you are looking for a book on how to use SPSS, I recommend you look elsewhere.
I have taken several classes that have used SPSS. When I started taking these classes I had little to no knowledge about statistics. It was extremely frustrating to understand the texts that were put out by SPSS. After reviewing this book, I have a clear understanding of how to use SPSS. It made the difficult task of understanding the output simple. SPSS is intuitive, in the sense that it is simple to pick a test and run it. However, understanding which particular piece of data is of interest to you is not intuitive. This book helps clear up the jungle of data that you have to trek through to come up with your conclusion.
