The great thing about this book is it's ease of reading. The logic behind statistical methods are explained, unlike many other books. In many areas of medicine, optometry and dentistry it is important to explain the reasons behind the choice of statistical methods when carrying out research. This book explains simply and concisely which methods are used and why. Scenarios are given in order to give context to the statistics, allowing the reader to understand the analyses better. Reasons for different post hoc tests are given and parametric vs non-parametric methods are discussed. A great read.
