"… guides readers to think through their problems, to design
experiments to answer their questions, to analyze the data accruing
from those experiments, and to draw sensible inferences. … the
exercises at the end of the chapter give readers the opportunity to
test their understanding. … a handy companion for agronomists and
environmental scientists who need to experiment with treatments
they can control."

"…One strength of the text is that there are many actual agricultural and biological examples and data analysis problems. … This text would be beneficial to those whose backgrounds are in agriculture and biology, those who would like to see basic computational details, and those who prefer the classical test statistic/critical value approach to hypothesis testing."
