A comprehensive textbook on statistics written for both novices and advanced analysts. This - one of a kind - book offers a comprehensive, almost encyclopedic presentation of statistical methods and analytic approaches used in science, industry, business, and data mining, written from the perspective of the real-life practitioner ("consumer") of these methods.
The electronic version of this textbook has also won the prestigious distinction of becoming the only Internet resource on statistics and data analysis recommended by Encyclopedia Britannica.
A comprehensive textbook on statistics written for both novices and advanced analysts. This one-of-a-kind book offers a comprehensive, almost encyclopedic presentation of statistical methods and analytic approaches used in science, industry, business, and data mining, written from the perspective of the real-life practitioner ("consumer") of these methods. The primary emphasis is on applications rather than theoretical derivations and formulas. The authors, experienced researchers, draw on their diverse experiences as teachers of quantitative methods at the graduate and undergraduate levels with extensive, real-life consulting expertise (they have been involved in hundreds of projects in various areas of science, business, and industry, on all continents).
The earlier editions of this unique book were available for over 10 years on the Internet, where it has earned praise from thousands of readers and benefited from their comments, questions, and requests for coverage of specific topics. The electronic version of this textbook (available on CD with the purchase of the printed version) has also won the prestigious distinction of becoming the only Internet resource on statistics and data analysis recommended by Encyclopedia Britannica.
This book was written without assuming that the reader has any prior knowledge of statistics. Instead, it successfully guides the reader all the way from the basic foundations of statistical reasoning, to the most advanced, cutting-edge methods. It includes hundreds of examples and thousands of illustrations created with leading edge data visualization and data mining software. This unusually comprehensive book also includes chapters on industrial statistics, on the emerging areas of predictive analytics, data mining and text mining, and a 200-page, illustrated Glossary of statistical terms.
A coupon in the book entitles the reader to receive a CD with the electronic, hypertext version, which includes color graphics and animations.

"As a professional medical statistician of some 40 years standing, I can unreservedly recommend this textbook as a resource for self-education, teaching and on-the-fly illustration of specific statistical methodology in one-to-one statistical consulting. The topic area coverage is unparalleled in a single textbook, drawing in the usual suspects, but many not-so-usual: Classification trees, Neural networks, Structural equation modeling, to name but a few. This book is an absolute friend-in-need when you need to get to the point fast, without fuss, in a way that anyone can understand."
