This books ticks many boxes: Does one thing and does it well, explains with enough detail, small, cute, articulate.

Then why the 2 stars: One for its price it could have a little bit of more information, or examples. Two the dead tree / paper version is just rushed and should not be ...more

Here's an example:

Bayes Theorem is simple, but it's implications are tremendous. There are many statistical probabilities that at face value seem concerning, but when the information is properly plug-in, you see a different result.

Here's an example:

1. We know that the peop ...more

با توجه به تب این روزهای انتخابات، ذکر این نکته خالی از لطف نیست که پیش بینی های علمی رایج عمدتا بر اساس قضیه بیز انجام می گیرند. آشنایی اولیه با این قضیه می تواند برای همگان مفید باشد و باعث شود دیدگاههای واقع بینانه تری بر اساس شواهد و اطلاعات داشته باشیم

As an introductory book, it is a short and useful text. Examples and graphics are fine, although sometimes repetitive. However, I was expecting to see more insights on how to understand our problem is app ...more

**I needed to be taught math like this in school!**

Excellent first contact with a long-debated but now indispensible nugget of mathematical ingeniousness. As a probability tool, Bayes' has been used everywhere from breaking the Enigma code machines to locating derelict sailors at sea to accurately predicting elections. Dan Morris gives very clear explanations and guides the reader through easy-to-understand examples, reviewed over and over under different lights. What little math I've learned has b ...more

**Easy and useful**

A perfect book to not only learn about but to work with the theory. The simple formula is the basis of understanding things from how to asses medical tests to how to detect spam. Even if your knowledge of probability is minimal this book will teach you quite a lot about Bayesian thinking. You will also find out why it should really be called Laplace’s Theorem, but even so Laplace already has more than enough named in his honor, so I’m quite happy with the honor going to the Bay ...more

**A very quick but useful introduction**

This is a thorough and enjoyable yet basic introduction to Bayes’ Theorem. Just Bayes’ Theorem. If you are looking for a 1 to 5 hour exploration of a single equation with references for further study, this is for you. If you are looking for anything more than that, this isn’t for you. Buy the electronic version for easy access to the many hyperlinks in the text.
