Robert Kuehl's DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS, Second Edition, prepares students to design and analyze experiments that will help them succeed in the real world. Kuehl uses a large array of real data sets from a broad spectrum of scientific and technological fields. This approach provides realistic settings for conducting actual research projects. Next, he emphasizes the importance of developing a treatment design based on a research hypothesis as an initial step, then developing an experimental or observational study design that facilitates efficient data collection. In addition to a consistent focus on research design, Kuehl offers an interpretation for each analysis.
I find the book well written, and useful in both a teaching context as well as a consulting one. I find his narrative style in the text, and development of mathematical structures in an appendix at the end of each chapter desirable from a teaching standpoint. The narrative text sets the stage for the mathematical treatment...Kuehl has put the right emphasis on the use of a computer.

I don't know how you got a book printed 26 years ago in the conditions that I received it (like new) but you do it! ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!
