I just learned there is an entire podcasting network dedicated to reviewing authors of new academic books. The New Book Network: newbooksnetwork.com

I am just now discovering the spicy discourse about causation as a function of qualitative research and hooo boy is it just a lot.

I guess I should feel good that it's the formatting of charts and graphs in SPSS that I find frustrating, and not the actual statistics, right?
