My big gripe with this book is that the Kindle formatting is horrible (Kindle PC App, and Kindle iPad App). Some equations are barely readable, others are huge and take up a third of the page, just ridiculous to try to read.
I think it would be better to get this from Oreilly in pdf format. Wish Amazon would get their act together on the Kindle books.
I don't see it as as an introduction to statistics but rather as a tool for those who know there is a procedure that will really help them solve a present problem, but can't remember what it was nor exactly how to use it.
There are a lot (for a textbook wannabe) of really stupid errors, such as characterizing something one way and then, a few sentences later, characterizing it as the opposite.
The good news is that the publisher maintains an erratum site so you can see what errors were caught (or list any you find).
The bad news is that there's a fairly lengthy erratum site.
