Review quote

! Since its first edition in 1997, Sheskin's encyclopedic compendium has been a helpful guide to the perplexed. ! The great value of the book is in its organization. ! This volume is an invaluable desk reference that, if consulted, should greatly increase the appropriateness of the experimental results on which much of CS relies. Its detailed discussions of both statistics in general and individual tests will hopefully encourage computer scientists to learn more of the underlying theory that makes these tests meaningful. --Computing Reviews, July 2009! I recommend this book for those who already know which statistical test they want to apply and who want to learn how to do it, step by step, from the data to the conclusion. I also recommend it for teachers who will find a lot of good examples they can use within their courses. --Philippe Castagliola, Universite de Nantes, Journal of Applied Statistics, November 2007, Vol. 34, No. 9 This book occupies a unique place in the literature. I am sure I will come back to it to check a statistical test. --Kostas Triantafyllopoulos, University of Sheffield, Significance, December 2007 ! provides both depth and breadth of coverage ! I can safely recommend this book as a handy resource manual for researchers and applied practitioners as well as a textbook for students majoring in disciplines other than statistics. --Technometrics, November 2007, Vol. 49, No. 4show more
