At last, a fresh approach to the research methods course. With 20+ years experience teaching the course, Michael Passer knows what students understand and where they struggle.  His highly anticipated new book, Research Methods: Concepts and Connections, offers students clear and compelling explanations and examples drawn from cutting-edge research from across the subfields of psychology. Readers come away with an unparalleled understanding of behavioral research practice in today’s world and how those skills apply to everyday life.

The writing style is exactly what I look for in a text. Clear, succinct sentences and a good vocabulary level. It is formal enough to be taken seriously, but not so formal as to be dry or boring.
