That's already on the list, I think? :) Well. The homepage isn't, but the book is. But I do like Andy Field, he's great! I love cats, so his books are right up my street.

Oh also, I would recommend the following for Research Design:

Harris, P. (2008). Designing and Reporting Experiments in Psychology
Quite a basic, but definitely useful, introduction.
