Media reviews

For the applied researcher who does much of her or his own data analysis, this book is a must-have. Even the applied statistician would benefit from owning a copy of this collection. It is certain that some 'rules' will be new, and the descriptions in the text can come in quite handy when one is trying to explain a concept to a non-statistician. In short, this collection of 'rules' is highly recommended. (MAA Reviews, Dec 2008) "The first edition was masterful, the second is beyond wonderful. First-edition topics have been updated; new chapters on observational studies and evidence-based medicine broaden and deepen impact. A must read for all who produce or read quantitative studies." (Thomas A. Louis, PhD, Department of Biostatistics, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health)
