The facts will startle the outside reader: how could a group of brilliant scientists wander so  Leer más

Resumen de la editorial

"What is important is a shift of emphasis away from a dichotomous world of true and false towards a recognition of "oomph." This is what the presented book tries to achieve. It is also fun to read, Leer más

The authors find that researchers in a broad spectrum of fields, from agronomy to zoology, employ testing that doesn't "test" and estimating that doesn't "estimate". The facts will startle the outside reader: how could a group of brilliant scientists wander so far from scientific magnitudes? This study will encourage scientists who want to know how to get the statistical sciences back on track and fulfill their quantitative promise. The book shows for the first time how wide the disaster is, and how bad for science, and it traces the problem to its historical, sociological, and philosophical roots."@en
