Reviews of the first edition
the book is one of the most successful among statistical geography texts in achieving its aim of a clear, painless, and well–illustrated introduction to difficult concepts. Geographical Analysis
Highly recommended for its clarity and exemplification the author and publishers have certainly made the text clear, easily readable an interesting with many good figures and tables, worked examples and directly related exercises with 18 pages of answers and explanations to the latter. Royal Statistical Society
The features I particularly like are the number of examples and class exercises, the constant attempts to relate each method back to statistical theory, and the useful diagrams. The author succeeds at showing why statistical tests have sampling distributions, produces some outstanding diagrams to illustrate linear regression, and has a fine set of statistical tables.
