Schargel, The University of Texas at Arlington * <"Intuitive Biostatistics places statistical concepts and practical issues of data analysis within an understandable light. The textbook helps the reader grasp the fundamentals and the pitfalls of data presentation and analysis. It should be on the <"must-read>" list of clinicians, journal reviewers, editors, and other consumers of scientific literature.> * John D. Bonagura, The Ohio State University * <"This book applies what I would call <"scientific common sense>" to the confusing world of statistical analysis and interpretation. If you want to really understand what a p-value is, read this book.> * Louis G. Zachos, University of Mississippi * <"This splendid book meets a major need in public health, medicine, and biomedical research training. It is a user-friendly biostatistics text for non-mathematicians that clearly explains how to make sense of statistical results, avoid common mistakes in data analysis, avoid being confused by statistical nonsense, and how to make research more reproducible. Students may enjoy statistics for the first time! * Gilbert S. Omenn, University of Michigan *
