Useful website for people interested in data analysis

Here's a revolutionary website: all data and code accompanying papers.

Imagine if it was mandatory to release data with your publication! It would make life so much easier.

Is this book for you?

Here is a simple test to decide whether this book is aimed at your current ability level:

Define odds as: odds=p/(1-p). Can you define p in terms of odds? 

If you couldn't solve it, don't feel dejected. That's a problem that can be fixed, and besides, I know a lot of people who are in the same boat as you. Our book is not designed to fix this problem (that would require more contact with mathematics, which is up to you), but our book is designed to teach a little bit to people who're at this level.

PS You may benefit from the book even if you could solve the above problem. Just take a look and decide for yourself.

Please send me email if you find any other errors (including errors in the errata ;).
