Media reviews

"Essential Biostatistics distills the essence of university-level biostatistics topics in accessible, concise language that is engaging and thought-provoking. This text would be an excellent companion to a traditional biostatistics book."
– Derek Webb, Bemidji State University

"The author does a great job explaining why we use statistics rather than getting bogged down explaining how we calculate statistics. I find it refreshing to step back from the calculations to see the larger context of why we use statistics in science."
– Dean W. Coble, Stephen F. Austin State University

"I really like the clear and humorous style, the wealth of examples, and the discussions of the limits and pitfalls. This is a wonderful book."
– Naji Younes, George Washington University
