Bayes Rules!: An Introduction to Applied Bayesian Modeling

Bayes Rules!: An Introduction to Applied Bayesian Modeling - Alicia A. Johnson

Bayes Rules!: An Introduction to Applied Bayesian Modeling


Praise for Bayes Rules!: An Introduction to Applied Bayesian Modeling

"A thoughtful and entertaining book, and a great way to get started with Bayesian analysis."

Andrew Gelman, Columbia University

"The examples are modern, and even many frequentist intro books ignore important topics (like the great p-value debate) that the authors address. The focus on simulation for understanding is excellent."

Amy Herring, Duke University

"I sincerely believe that a generation of students will cite this book as inspiration for their use of - and love for - Bayesian statistics. The narrative holds the reader's attention and flows naturally - almost conversationally. Put simply, this is perhaps the most engaging introductory statistics textbook I have ever read. [It] is a natural choice for an introductory undergraduate course in applied Bayesian statistics.

Yue Jiang, Duke University

"This is by far the best book I've seen on how to (and how to teach students to) do Bayesian modeling and understand the underlying mathematics and computation. The authors build intuition and scaffold ideas expertly, using interesting real case studies, insightful graphics, and clear explanations. The scope of this book is vast - from basic building blocks to hierarchical modeling, but the authors' thoughtful organization allows the reader to navigate this journey smoothly. And impressively, by the end of the book, one can run sophisticated Bayesian models and actually understand the whys, whats, and hows."

Paul Roback, St. Olaf College

"The authors provide a compelling, integrated, accessible, and non-religious introduction to statistical modeling using a Bayesian approach. They outline a principled approach that features computational implementations and model assessment with ethical implications interwoven throughout. Students and instructors will find the conceptual and computational exercises to be fresh and engaging."

Nicholas Horton, Amherst College

An engaging, sophisticated, and fun introduction to the field of Bayesian statistics, Bayes Rules!: An Introduction to Applied Bayesian Modeling brings the power of modern Bayesian thinking, modeling, and computing to a broad audience. In particular, the book is an ideal resource for advanced undergraduate statistics students and practitioners with comparable experience. Bayes Rules! empowers readers to weave Bayesian approaches into their everyday practice. Discussions and applications are data driven. A natural progression from fundamental to multivariable, hierarchical models emphasizes a practical and generalizable model building process. The evaluation of these Bayesian models reflects the fact that a data analysis does not exist in a vacuum.

Features

- Utilizes data-driven examples and exercises.

- Emphasizes the iterative model building and evaluation process.

- Surveys an interconnected range of multivariable regression and classification models.

- Presents fundamental Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation.

- Integrates R code, including RStan modeling tools and the bayesrules package.

- Encourages readers to tap into their intuition and learn by doing.

- Provides a friendly and inclusive introduction to technical Bayesian concepts.

- Supports Bayesian applications with foundational Bayesian theory.
