'It's remarkable that, after the appearance of many statistics textbooks and statistics computer packages over the years, finally someone has produced a succinct and accessible text that takes a common-sense and appealing approach to the basics of statistical analysis. Complementing Steve McKillup's remarkably lucid explanations is a format which sings pleasingly with clarity. The book progresses in logical fashion through the variety of statistical tests and gives the reader a sound background in the process without the common dizzying confusion. The narrative style and informative approach has made my copy a much-travelled item from my bookshelf to the shores of both undergraduate confusion and postgraduate clarification. However, I always make sure it comes back because it [is] a valued item in my biology toolkit.' Michael Kokkinn, University of South Australia
'Statistics Explained is an excellent introduction to statistics for new students and a helpful refresher for more seasoned researchers. The text is quite readable and filled with practical examples for the life sciences.' Erin D. Sheets, University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy
'Most exciting perhaps are the topics covered that are not often discussed in introductory textbooks ... I have no doubt that Statistics Explained will find a large and appreciative audience among undergraduate biology majors.' The Quarterly Review of Biology
