Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition of Intuitive Biostatistics retains and refines the core perspectives of the previous edition: a focus on how to interpret statistical results rather than on how to analyze data, minimal use of equations, and a detailed review of assumptions and common mistakes. Intuitive Biostatistics, Completely Revised Second Edition, provides a clear introduction to statistics for undergraduate and graduate students and also serves as a statistics refresher for working scientists.
NEW TO THIS EDITION:
* Chapter 1 shows how our intuitions lead us to misinterpret data, thus explaining the need for statistical rigor.
* Chapter 11 explains the lognormal distribution, an essential topic omitted from many other statistics books.
* Chapter 21 contrasts testing for equivalence with testing for differences.
* Chapters 22, 23, and 40 explore the pervasive problem of multiple comparisons.
* Chapters 24 and 25 review testing for normality and outliers.
* Chapter 35 shows how statistical hypothesis testing can be understood as comparing the fits of alternative models.
* Chapters 37 and 38 provide a brief introduction to multiple, logistic, and proportional hazards regression.
* Chapter 46 reviews one example in great depth, reviewing numerous statistical concepts and identifying common mistakes.
* Chapter 47 includes 49 multi-part problems, with answers fully discussed in Chapter 48.
* New "Q and A" sections throughout the book review key concepts.

"The second edition of Intuitive Biostatistics is a substantial improvement. I am particularly impressed by the chapters on multiple comparisons. This is increasingly important for such molecular trickery as gene expression chips, which produce a very large number of possible comparisons. Individual comparisons and even a Bonferroni correction are often inadequate. Motulsky deals with a newer method, false discovery rate (FDR), in a clear, understandable way. I'll be recommending the new edition with even greater enthusiasm."--James F. Crow, University of Wisconsin"This splendid book meets a major need in public health, medicine, and biomedical research training--a user-friendly biostatistics text for non-mathematicians that clearly explains how to make sense of statistical results and how to avoid being confused by statistical nonsense. You may enjoy statistics for the first time!"--Gilbert S. Omenn, Professor of Medicine, Genetics, Public Health, and Computational Medicine & Bioinformatics, University of Michigan"I wish everyone involved in medical and pharmaceutical research would read Intuitive Biostatistics: A Nonmathematical Guide to Statistical Thinking. There is very little about cookbook techniques in this book; instead it concentrates on the underlying assumptions, and just why some inferences are valid and some are not. It's not easy going, but statistical inference isn't an easy subject. Alas, now that computers have made it easy to do the cookbook work to compile all kinds of statistical numbers, many think that the subject is easy, and computers can do all the work. IntuitiveBiostatistics will disabuse them of that error. The book uses many examples from pharmacology research. Recommended." --Jerry Pournelle, Chaos Manor ReviewsAbout the Author:
