A superb combination of lucid prose and informative graphics, written by four of the worlds leading experts on all aspects of meta–analysis. Borenstein, Hedges, Higgins, and Rothstein provide a refreshing departure from cookbook approaches with their clear explanations of the what and why of meta–analysis. The book is ideal as a course textbook or for self–study. My students, who used pre–publication versions of some of the chapters, raved about the clarity of the explanations and examples. David Rindskopf, Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology, City University of New York, Graduate School and University Center, & Editor of the Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics.
The approach taken by Introduction to Meta–analysis is intended to be primarily conceptual, and it is amazingly successful at achieving that goal. The reader can comfortably skip the formulas and still understand their application and underlying motivation. For the more statistically sophisticated reader, the relevant formulas and worked examples provide a superb practical guide to performing a meta–analysis. The book provides an eclectic mix of examples from education, social science, biomedical studies, and even ecology. For anyone considering leading a course in meta–analysis, or pursuing self–directed study, Introduction to Meta–analysis would be a clear first choice. Jesse A. Berlin, ScD
Introduction to Meta–Analysis is an excellent resource for novices and experts alike. The book provides a clear and comprehensive presentation of all basic and most advanced approaches to meta–analysis. This book will be referenced for decades. Michael A. McDaniel, Professor of Human Resources and Organizational Behavior, Virginia Commonwealth University
Both books can be recommended for graduate training and are useful additions to the library of those interested in the meta–analytic accumulation of literatures on training, vocational learning, and education in the professions. (Vocations and Learning, 15 December 2010)
