Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(4), 299–301. Reviews the book, Selecting and Ordering Populations: A New Statistical Methodology by Jean Dickinson Gibbons, Ingram Olkin, and Milton Sobel (1977). The purpose of the authors is to acquaint users of statistical methods with these little-used techniques. The book is directed at various users of statistical methods, investigators and reseachers in psychology, engineering, biology, management science, marketing, and so forth. The authors have collected and presented the available literature on the subject along with the required tables, and they have done so in a simple, nontechnical, cookbook manner, excellent for people interested in using these statistical methods in their own substantive fields. It can serve as an excellent reference book for the research worker who is already statistically sophisticated and wants to become more so. Future textbooks on introductory statistics for social scientists could well include a chapter on this methodology. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
