"While reading this book, I joined the authors on a learning endeavor thanks to their honesty and intellectual vulnerability. Their lack of experience with Bayesian statistics helps them to be effective communicators . . . If you are interested in starting your Bayesian journey, then Bayesian Statistics for Beginners is an excellent place to begin." - Taylor Saucier, Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Aquaculture, Mississippi State University, The Journal of Wildlife Management
