Given that there are, arguably, two
primary approaches to statistics,
frequentist (or classical) and Bayesian,
most of the textbooks are
written by frequentist statisticians.
However, more and more people
have realized the advantages of
using Bayesian statistics and they
have appeared increasingly in forensics
and other areas of analysis.
Bolstad’s book focuses on Bayesian
statistics as a textbook for undergraduate
students as well as useful
material for anyone with an interest
in the subject.
