Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Following a brief tutorial introducing statistics from a mathematically minimalist approach for non-statistician scientists, the author covers the basics of designing an experiment/survey, data analysis and presentation, and specific methods. Reading lists point to more advanced treatments. Appends material on statistical tests, chapter data, using computer packages (e.g., Excel, Minitab), and worked examples. Townend's university affiliation is not given. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
