5.0 out of 5 stars nice idea to collect Fisher's famous works, April 20, 2008
This review is from: Statistical Methods, Experimental Design, and Scientific Inference: A Re-issue of Statistical Methods for Research Workers, The Design of Experiments, and Statistical Methods and Scientific Inference (Paperback)
After pioneering a theory of mathematical statistics with his important works in the 1920s he published Statistical Methods for Research Workers to teach the method of maximum likelihood, significance testing and distribution theory. The Design of Experiments was the first book on experimental design. Fisher developed the principles of randomization and the analysis of variance. As a geneticist good scientific experimentation was important to him. He explains the principles beautifully through the lady tasting tea example. See also the wonderful book by Salsburg with that title. It gives a wonderful account of experimental design and Fisher's contributions to it. The third book is of lesser importance in my opinion and is a treatise about Fisher's philosophy about statistical inference and the scientific method.

I have my own copy of Design of Experiments and I believe these books are still in print individually. But it seems to me to be valuable to have them bound together in a single volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historically important collection, January 17, 2005
This review is from: Statistical Methods, Experimental Design, and Scientific Inference: A Re-issue of Statistical Methods for Research Workers, The Design of Experiments, and Statistical Methods and Scientific Inference (Paperback)
This volume is a collection of three of R A Fisher (RAF)'s most important books. The importance of these books cannot be overstated as two of them have gone through many editions.

I'm sure most libraries should hold multiple copies of most books by R.A.F, an important figure in modern statistics. Should one buy this book? Of course IF the price is right. This rule should apply to most historically important books. Today's value of this book is mostly historical. There are certainly many original ideas in these books. But equally so are many of RAF's papers which are freely available, which one should read again and again.(...) So even if I rated RAF's works very highly, I agree with one of the reviewers' that, one should be careful in investing our very limited resources to get our most needed books. A general rule: priority should be given to newer books and the books that you will most need in the future.

Incredible to read the actual writings of the greatest statistician of the 20th century. Excellent volume that includes several important works.

This review is from: Statistical Methods, Experimental Design, and Scientific Inference: A Re-issue of Statistical Methods for Research Workers, The Design of Experiments, and Statistical Methods and Scientific Inference (Paperback)
It is great to have on hand 3 classic texts available to review and study. Maybe there could be more statistical classics made available to the public.
