Intuitive Biostatistics: A Life Saver!
on July 17, 2012
I'm a retired cancer researcher (molecular biology) turned biomedical writer/editor. My use of statistics (and increasing ignorance thereof) was limited, because, in general, if an experiment didn't yield at least a 10x difference, we threw it out. Now I can't do my job without knowing biostatistics. Moltulsky's book has been enormously helpful in teaching me the basics of biostatistics and enabling me to evaluate manuscripts for correct use of statistical terms and methods. Previously I used (and still do) Motulsky's manual for his GraphPad software, the AMA Manual online, and, of course, the internet. The only problem with the book is that a digital version isn't available. However, as the author pointed out to me, you can search the book to some extent on its Amazon.com product page. Finally, the author's immediately available via email. This is a terrific resource and value!
