If they cut any more corners on the production of this book they'd be shipping frisbees.
The third edition has a massive gluing flaw on the CD bound inside the front cover, making the cover a wrinkled mess. Inside it is worse - it appears to be a bad inkjet copy of the second edition, with cheap paper and no colour. Needless to say this makes the graphs and the breakout notes look like crap. I am very disappointed with this book.
The content seems fine, but reading a book with production values this low is a significant chore.
The publisher has responded to my criticism of the print quality of the book by offering to send me the *real* version - I apparently have a print-on-demand copy necessitated by a problem with their regular printer. This is obviously a very satisfactory resolution to the problem. As a sidebar, not all print-on-demand books have poor quality, but this one sure did.
A great explanation of the basics though. And funny as hell :)

This book is really wonderful! The authors make statistics easy to understand, both with their humorous writing style and their many examples to illustrate their points.Published 17 months ago by Anita
