Description - How Science Works by Stephen H. Jenkins
This work teaches readers about the scientific process, showing how one frames questions and designs experiments to test hypotheses, how one assesses evidence to elucidate multiple or complex causes, the different forms of explanations, elementary meta-analysis to show how one combines results from multiple studies, confidence levels, modelling and prediction, and the challenges of interpreting data and evaluating competing models and theories. The author uses appropriate topical examples to help lay readers, or students in non-major science courses, to understand the scientific method.
