Fantastic statistics text
on January 21, 2010
I am still in the midst of a course using this text and I am very impressed.
First, it's actually a pretty funny book. I'm a sucker for that slightly twisted British humour and this book has lots of it. Kudos for being funny about STATISTICS, a topic that makes many of us in the social sciences quake in fear and decide that qualitative analysis really is a more appropriate methodological choice.
Second, the information is clearly presented and is available in multiple formats, especially when the accompanying website resources are considered. Lots of ways to obtain and check one's absorption of the material.
Finally, it looks like this text is one that will continue to be useful to me even after I finish this required course. I am finding it to be a handy reference to all things (well at least at the level I care about now) quantitative.
