Editorial Reviews

Review

"Uniquely accessible and abounding in modern-day tools, tricks, and advice, the text successfully bridges the gap between the current level of social science methodology and the more sophisticated technical coverage." (Zentralblatt Math 1130, May 2008)

"Clarity of presentations is excellent. Applied statisticians and computer scientists will like this book and find it very useful." (Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation, November 2005)

"[The authors] …have succeeded in providing...a good understanding of the potential pitfalls involved in the implementation of methodology computationally, and...good advice on dealing with the problems that can arise." (Statistics in Medical Research, June 2005)

“This book provides the researcher with an overview of the issues involved in the implementation and computation of common statistical procedures….” (Statistical Methods in Medical Research, Vol. 14, 2005)

"…this book is a good reference for social scientists that are involved in computational statistics." (Journal of Statistical Software, April 2005)

"…timely and interesting, and on the whole provides a good balance of theory, application, and computation." (Technometrics, May 2005)

"…an excellent text. It has the potential to be enormously influential across the social sciences…It should be required reading for everyone who performs statistical computing at the advanced level…" (Journal of the American Statistical Association, June 2005)

“…a compact guide to the voluminous literature on optimisation, numerical analysis, and computational statistics. This is no small achievement.” (Statistical Software Newsletter in Computational Statistics and Data Analysis)

"…a very important one for researchers, social scientists, and…graduate and post-graduate students in various disciplines..." (Computing Reviews.com, July 6, 2004)

"This comprehensive research and guidebook by Altman, Gill, and McDonald offers to social scientists modern tools and tricks previously lacking in other works.” (Choice, June 2004, Vol. 41 No. 10)

From the Author

If you have any interest in creating statistical analyses that are accurate, I hope you will read the full reviews on the website, our sample chapters, and, eventually, our book. If you read it, I hope that you will find it both provocative and useful. Our web site provides related papers, all of the computer code used in the book, links to resources useful for accurate statistical computing, and links to every independent review we have located.
