Excellent Introduction into Bayesian Analysis.

This book not only is a good book to learn Bayesian statistics from, but it's also a great reference for the subject as well. Taking a very hands-on approach, the concepts and philosophy of Bayesian statistical analysis are clearly presented through lucid explanations and an abundance of well-chosen examples. In the second edition, there is also a significant portion of the book dedicated to algorithmic implementation of Bayesian inference schemes; and this material is accompanied by C source co ...more

I'm afraid I only got about half way through this, and will return to it once I've brushed up on my vector calculus, as some of the maths was *very* unfamiliar to me (I suspect it's written with experimental scientists with a background in physics or engineering in mind, rather than compsci geeks). Despite that though, I think I managed to absorb a lot of the principles of and the rationale behind the bayesian approach to statistical analysis, and I look forward to understanding the detail once ...more

I enjoyed the first few chapters of this book. They were a good introduction to Baysian inference even if you don't know much about statistics. Unfortunately this fall to this fell to the bottom of my priority list and I took so long reading the rest of it that I didn't get anything out of it our really follow it. My fault not the author's.
