Overall, Kruschke is to be applauded for his incredible efforts at writing such a highly accessible and useful textbook on Bayesian statistics. Doing Bayesian Data Analysis is an impressive piece of work that presents a major step in the dissemination of the Bayesian approach into mainstream psychology and will shape the way future psychologists will deal with their data. We are delighted to use it again in our course and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to acquaint students with Bayesian statistics...Big thanks to Wolf and Francis for using the book, and for the thoughtful review!
