Count Bayesie's Recommended Books in Probability and Statistics
Bayesian Statistics the Fun Way is out soon!
If you enjoy reading this blog I really think you’ll love my book “Bayesian Statistics the Fun Way” published by No Starch. The book is designed so that anyone can dive in and learn the basics of Bayesian statistics. Even if the math in this blog is sometimes a bit too much for you, all you need to get started is basic high school algebra. The book starts with a tour of probability as logic, the move on to conditional probabilities and Bayes’ theorem, the on to parameter estimation and hypothesis testing. It includes completely reworked posts from this blog and a ton of new content! If you order from No Starch you can get a free ebook with your print copy (or just order to ebook) or you can order on Amazon, or pick it up at your local book store!
