In a Nutshell...
Andy Field is Professor of Child Psychopathology at the University of Sussex, UK. Historically he researches emotion development in children, but increasingly he sits alone in a cave full of glow-worms listening to heavy metal and 70’s rock and looking at numbers. His uncontrollable enthusiasm for teaching statistics to psychologists has led to teaching awards from the University of Sussex (2001, 2015, 2016), the British Psychological Society (2006) and a prestigious National Teaching fellowship (2010). He’s done lots of other academic things too but he finds it tedious trying to remember what they might have been. None of them really matter because in the unlikely event that you’ve ever heard of him it’ll be as the ‘Stats book guy’. In his spare time, he plays the drums very noisily in a heavy metal band, which he finds therapeutic.
Andy has his own website that includes even more free resources to help you get the hang of statistics. These include handouts, tutorials, extracts from his other books, videos and blogs. Definitely worth a look. You can also follow Andy on Facebook and on Twitter.
