Many scientists have a hate-love relationship with statistics. Personally, I didn’t like statistics (at all) during my masters degree education . Too theoretical, didn’t see the utility of it. Only when I generated my first data during my PhD research, I started realizing the necessity and power of bio-statistics. Later, I almost really fell in love with statistics after reading Intuitive biostatistics by Harvey Motulsky. This excellent book is written by an author who graduated from medical school; this probably explains why it contains only the most pertinent formulas. I particularly appreciate the book as it really is intuitive; it almost reads like a novel, and you could read it in bed, next to the fireplace with a glass of your favorite wine, or even when you’re on holidays. If you always felt the need to sharpen your basic bio-statistics skills, then this book may be really something for you.
