This book takes beginner students hand-in-hand through a journey in the world of statistics without dumbing down the concepts, just making them very accessible. It teaches the basics (and beyond) by stimulating critical thinking.
A very easy to read book that deals with the issues of statistics in a very sound yet understandable way
I teach on three different Masters programmes and have included this book in the reading list for all three of them. Two of these programmes have a new cohort joining the University each term. A very well written book which our students find helpful. I have also purchased a hard copy for my own library.
I think this book goes some way in supporting people who find statistics difficult and beginner researchers. I like the clarity and easy to read format coupled with numerous examples and exercises.
It is an advanced and alternative view to hypothesis testing that I at least partially agree with. I think that it is important that students are exposed to alternative views and realise that there is not just one correct answer.
