Industry Reviews

"The topic is timely and the writing style is pragmatic and user-friendly. The field needs an updated book on research methods."

-- Pamela G. Osnes

"There is a definite need for a `how to' book such as this to train behavior analysts...The authors have a very thorough and understandable approach to the topics. They include lots of examples and everyday insights and practical tips that are valuable to new researchers...The strength of this book seems to be in the authors' experience and sharing of practical advice to readers."

-- Don Patterson

"I like the conversational style, and I think my students would enjoy reading this book...There is no other how-to text on this topic. I think it will make a useful and much-needed addition to the behavioral textbook market."

-- Jennifer Austin
