The stand-up comedian is our hero. Unchanged fundamentally since the days of the Music Hall, he—and occasionally she—has been a waspish or laconic or outrageous commentator on politics, sex, work, friends, and the family. John Fisher traces the traditions of the music hall comedian as they are handed down through the great British comics of the twentieth century. Dan Leno, the Crazy Gang, Will Hay, and Max Miller are seen to pass the baton to the great radio comics like Arthur Askey, Tony Hancock, Frankie Howerd, and the Goons. In time, Morecambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, Benny Hill, the Two Ronnies, and Ken Dodd are seen to hold the flame. The comedians understand us as no one else, and in this distinctively original and funny book John Fisher comes close to understanding them, what makes us laugh and the connecting themes in their humor and our responses. First published in 1973 when he was in his late 20's, John Fisher's Funny Way to be a Hero is regarded as the finest book ever written on 20th century comedians and comedy. Fisher in his career as a television producer went on to become a friend to many of the subjects written about in his book. Forty years later, he has revised and expanded the original from this perspective and added six new chapters. With spectacular new design and over 350 illustrations, many never published before, this will be a landmark publication.

A greatly expanded and heavily revised second edition, this popular guide provides instructions and clear examples for running analyses of variance (ANOVA) and several other related statistical tests of significance with SPSS. No other guide offers the program statements required for the more advanced tests in analysis of variance. All of the programs in the book can be run using any version of SPSS, including versions 11 and 11.5. A table at the end of the preface indicates where each type of analysis (e.g., simple comparisons) can be found for each type of design (e.g., mixed two-factor design). Providing comprehensive coverage of the basic and advanced topics in ANOVA, this is the only book available that provides extensive coverage of SPSS syntax, including the commands and subcommands that tell SPSS what to do, as well as the pull-down menu point-and-click method (PAC). Detailed explanation of the syntax, including what is necessary, desired, and optional helps ensure that users can validate the analysis being performed. The book features the output of each design along with a complete explanation of the related printout. The new edition was reorganized to provide all analysis related to one design type in the same chapter. It now features expanded coverage of analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and mixed designs, new chapters on designs with random factors, multivariate designs, syntax used in PAC, and all new examples of output with complete explanations. The new edition is accompanied by a CD-ROM with all of the book's data sets, as well as exercises for each chapter. This book is ideal for readers familiar with the basic concepts of the ANOVA technique including both practicing researchers and data analysts, as well as advanced students learning analysis of variance.
