Geoff Cumming.
Understanding the New Statistics: effect sizes, confidence intervals, and meta-analysis.
Routledge. 2012

This is the first book to introduce the new statistics -- effect sizes, confidence intervals, and meta-analysis -- in an accessible way. It is chock full of practical examples and tips on how to analyze and report research results using these techniques. The book is invaluable to readers interested in meeting the new APA Publication Manual guidelines by adopting the new statistics -- which are more informative than null hypothesis significance testing, and becoming widely used in many disciplines.
