Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 435–436. Reviews the book, Evaluating information: A guide for users of social science research by Jeffrey Katzer, Kenneth H. Cook, and Wayne W. Crouch (1978). This is a splendid book with the density and relevance of examples, the detailed dissection of an actual study on invasion of personal space, the thoughtful discussions, and the items “For Further Thought” inserted at the end of each chapter all contributing to the success of this collaboration. The book is timely given the growing interest in interdisciplinary methodology presented under the rubric “the nature of evidence.” This book tells people what needs to be done and how to do it.
