"This book harks back to a time when 'Handbooks' were an essential ingredient for advanced undergraduate and graduate education in experimental psychology. The book does a marvelous job of surveying the wide discipline that is now experimental psychology with coverage in each chapter giving at least a nod to the historical foundations in that area. The Goodwin chapter alone is worth the cost of the book." Randall W. Engle, Georgia Institute of Technology

"Davis' 'Handbook' would be a useful addition to an advanced undergraduate or graduate level course in general experimental psychology or research methods. Chapters that present research methods in the historical perspective are very good, and as several of the authors point out, clearly show that research methods are not static, but rather have and continue to evolve. I especially appreciate the inclusion of several chapters that deal with research employing non-human subjects." Daniel D. Moriarty, University of San Diego

"Those psychology libraries that do support a serious academic research programme will find this book to be an invaluable source of background reading, to be used in conjunction with standard manuals on research methods, rather than replacing them. I will certainly be recommending it as such to first-year postgraduates in my own institution." Martin Guha, Librarian, Institute of Psychiatry, London, Reference Reviews 2003

"Davis's fine collection will prove helpful to those seeking an introduction to the topics that engage researchers today. Summing up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through research, faculty, and professionals." G. B. Rollman, University of Western Ontario, Choice, January 2004
