By making introductory statistics interesting through comparing data on today's student generation with their parents' generation, and asking students to consider how people change as they grow older, the book uses data on subjective beliefs (such as freedom of speech and abortion) as well objective characteristics (years of schooling, marital status) to teach basic statistics using SPSS.
