Statistics Done Wrong

20150813_221216185_iOS

This is an excellent and important book.  The author covers important errors, biases and misconceptions in scientific studies and their interpretation. The writing  is clear, engaging and entertaining style. Each chapter ends with tips to prevent or address the issues raised in the chapter. The final chapter is an exhortation to all stakeholders, scientists, publishers, students and the general audience for culture change to improve the quality of our scientific debate and development.

The book highlights the prevalence of these misconceptions and as a reader I am glad to be woken from my self-satisfied but delusional slumber to think “slow” as well as fast (ala Kahneman).
