Reviews of Scientific Reasoning: The Bayesian Approach

Overall customer rating: 4.000


by SDSBrooklyn on Sep 10, 2009

Applications of Bayesian statistics are just now elbowing their way into service in many fields, yet statistical education for users of statistics who are not professional statisticians is still mired in "orthodoxy." This somewhat older book is an excellent introduction to the field and explains the arguments and counter-arguments clearly and in a studied, logical fashion. There is a certain amount of polemic (par for the course), but polite in a British kind of way (nothing like the rough-and-tumble anti-frequentist zingers of ET Jaynes). The math is accessible to anyone who took algebra, and is present in just the right quantity.
