- They do a decent job of explaining some difficult concepts
- If you don't like textbooks that try to liven-up dry subject matter with humor, then you will hate this book. These guys go overboard.
- The humor is mostly crude and I found it distracting more than anything.
- Often times they will introduce a formula, then give no example of it being used. Rosner does a good job of following up formulas and concepts with well written examples.
- I often spent a lot of time trying to grasp a topic in this book, only to find, when I opened up Rosner, I could figure it out quickly.
- Lots of unnecessary writing (mostly related to their attempts at humor)
Intuitive Biostatistics by Motolsky is also good if you are only interested in learning broad concepts. It does not delve into the math.
For those starting out in statistics, I'd recommend Urdin's book "Statistics in Plain English" as this book may overwhelm the novice.
