Doing Bayesian Data Analysis: A Tutorial with R, JAGS, and Stan, Second Edition provides an accessible approach for conducting Bayesian data analysis, as material is explained clearly with concrete examples. Included are step-by-step instructions on how to carry out Bayesian data analyses in the popular and free software R and WinBugs, as well as new programs in JAGS and Stan. The new programs are designed to be much easier to use than the scripts in the first edition. In particular, there are now compact high-level scripts that make it easy to run the programs on your own data sets. The book is divided into three parts and begins with the basics: models, probability, Bayes' rule, and the R programming language. The discussion then moves to the fundamentals applied to inferring a binomial probability, before concluding with chapters on the generalized linear model. Topics include metric-predicted variable on one or two groups; metric-predicted variable with one metric predictor; metric-predicted variable with multiple metric predictors; metric-predicted variable with one nominal predictor; and metric-predicted variable with multiple nominal predictors. The exercises found in the text have explicit purposes and guidelines for accomplishment. This book is intended for first-year graduate students or advanced undergraduates in statistics, data analysis, psychology, cognitive science, social sciences, clinical sciences, and consumer sciences in business.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I think it fills a gaping hole in what is currently available, and will serve to create its own market as researchers and their students transition towards the routine application of Bayesian statistical methods." -Prof. Michael lee, University of California, Irvine, and president of the Society for Mathematical Psychology "Kruschke's text covers a much broader range of traditional experimental designs...has the potential to change the way most cognitive scientists and experimental psychologists approach the planning and analysis of their experiments" -Prof. Geoffrey Iverson, University of California, Irvine, and past president of the Society for Mathematical Psychology "John Kruschke has written a book on Statistics. It's better than others for reasons stylistic. It also is better because itis Bayesian. To find out why, buy it -- it's truly amazin'!"-James L. (Jay) McClelland, Lucie Stern Professor & Chair, Dept. Of Psychology, Standford University
