Mildly helpful, but YouTube tutorials are more helpful and free, so the book isn't really worth it. If you need a book to hold you by the hand and walk you through everything step by step, then this might be a good choice. If you aren't a total computer/stats neophyte, it's probably a waste of time, money, and trees.

This is a good book to help you get started in Stata, which is a statistical analysis/graphics package. I love parts of it for its statistics teaching, very understandable but quite thorough. The book helped me get a deeper understanding of elementary analyses, not only how to perform them in Stata.

I didn't give the book 5 stars, because I could put it down.

Good, but maybe a little too gentle. The target audience is people who have not previously used any kind of statistical software/programming language.
