Intuitive Biostatistics: A Nonmathematical Guide to Statistical Thinking, 3rd edition
 Used Book in Good Condition
Thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition of Intuitive Biostatistics: A Nonmathematical Guide to Statistical Thinking retains and refines the core perspectives of the previous editions: a focus on how to interpret statistical results rather than on how to analyze data, minimal use of equations, and a detailed review of assumptions and common mistakes.
With its engaging and conversational tone, this unique book provides a clear introduction to statistics for undergraduate and graduate students in a wide range of fields and also serves as a statistics refresher for working scientists. It is especially useful for those students in healthscience related fields who have no background in biostatistics.

An excellent statistics book,
Harvey Motulsky seems to have pulled off the trick of writing a book with high explanatory power that will not intimidate the busy undergraduate, graduate student, postdoc, or primary investigator who wants to learn the necessary information but does not want to drown in esoteric details, problem sets, or unhelpful information. As a practicing neuroscientist, I appreciate a guide that is informative but also a pleasure to read (I don’t have time to read through the standard statistic texts I have come across).
It is not surprising that Motulsky is also the CEO of GraphPad Software, the company that makes Prism. This software intuitively guides scientists into using the appropriate statistical tests for their data, and it is easily the best and most userfriendly statistical software on the market. I have used Prism for years and was unaware that Motulsky also wrote this book. Now I plan on recommending this book to my students and colleagues, and I purchased a copy for my office and lab.
If you are a bioscientist intimidated by statistics (or feel like you could use a refresher after a long ago forgotten stats class), this book is a gem.
