Inmedical and health care the scientific method is little used, and statisticalsoftware programs are experienced as black box programs producing lots ofp-values, but little answers to scientific questions. The pocket calculatoranalyses appears to be, particularly, appreciated, because they enable medicaland health professionals and students for the first time to understand thescientific methods of statistical reasoning and hypothesis testing. So much so,that it can start something like a new dimension in their professional world. Inaddition, anumber of statistical methods like power calculations and required sample sizecalculations can be performed more easily on a pocket calculator, than using asoftware program. Also, there are some specific advantages of thepocket calculator method. You better understand what you are doing. The pocketcalculator works faster, because far less steps have to be taken, averages canbe used. The current nonmathematical book is complementary to thenonmathematical "SPSS for Starters and 2nd Levelers" (Springer HeidelbergGermany 2015, from the same authors), and can very well be used as its dailycompanion.
