-- Jerry Pournelle, Chaos Manor

"...an excellent book that actually delivers more than it promises and would be a worthy desktop addition to anyone who works with statistics on an at least semi-regular basis."
-- Neil Davis, Amazon.co.uk

"More than a textbook, this is a desktop reference, covering the basic concepts of statistics, starting from a more sophisticated point...As is the case with all Nutshell books, it is clear, focused, and comprehensive. "
-- Bruce W. Marcus, The Marcus Letter

"...for any who would use statistics in a job and who wants a quick understanding without textbook depth. Each chapter is supported by graphics, formulas, and solved examples reinforcing basic applied ideas. It's an outstanding reference. "
-- Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch: The Science Shelf

"The book is best used to get the lay of the land, especially in terms of the relationships between statistical tools and experimental design... In fact, the strength of the book is cutting to the chase and giving the reader a chance to understand where they needed to focus given their data set. "
-- Matt Cooper & Saera Khan, BayPIGgies

"If could I take one book only about statistics to a desert island, this book would be the one."
