  • Another genius named R.A. Fisher used this cube to create what is now known as the designed experiment. Fisher's colleagues and friends in the United States, Walter Shewhart and W. Edwards Deming, were inspired by the economy of his ideas. Fisher's model led to productivity breakthroughs in agriculture, medicine, bio-statistics, chemistry, and all other industries. Fisher's student, George Box, helped make Fisher's work accessible to undergraduate engineering students.

    The Box, Hunter, and Hunter textbook Statistics for Experimenters, A Introduction to Design, Data Analysis, and Model Building is the classic work that we distilled into a simplified model that can be used everyday on the job.

  • Newsletter ASA Statistical Education Section. Recommended gift for undergrad statistics student: 1) Statistics for Experimenters or The History of Statistics.

  • Still the "Bible" of practical design of experiments
    More than twenty years after its publication, this seminal work is still the undisputable "Bible" for users of statistical experimental design. The practical insights sprinkled throughout this book are invaluable especially to non-mathematical statisticians. This book will never be out-of-date!

    Professor T.N.Goh from National University of Singapore, August 7, 1999

  • Applying Statistics to Industry has never been easier
    Application of statistics in an industrial setting is often perceived as being difficult and time-consuming. This book clearly demonstrates that the use of experimental design not only enables a wider range of conclusions to be made, but the use of designs can minimizes the time, effort and cost required to obtain the results. George Box presents the theory clearly with many real-life industrial examples. It is the application of the theories to the examples which thoroughly convince the reader that the combination of a knowledge in ones area of expertise and the application of statistics can lead to extraordinarily promising results.

  • Excellent Book for the Statistically Challenged!! Not being a statistician but needing to understand Design of Experiments, I found this book to be extremely valuable. Box walks you thru the basic concepts through prediction and understanding of complex response surfaces. After taking it out of the library twice, I decided it was important to get my own copy. I now recommend it in every class I teach on optimization using finite element methods. DoE adds a whole new dimension to product performance simulation.

    "The book that is considered the 'Bible' of DOE" - New England Biometrics Six Sigma Forum Magazine interviewed (May 2002) five leading teachers of Six Sigma and asked the following question: What literature on the topic of Six Sigma do you find most useful. 3 of 5 recommended Statistics for Experimenters, including Tim Clapp, "We recommend this book for students who want to learn more about experimental design. Many of the examples we teach in class are based on this book or on notes from a recent series of lectures Hunter gave here last year."

    Hello isolated statisticians! I recently asked for suggestions for a book gift that might be appreciated by an undergraduate student of statistics. Here's an edited, cut-and-paste summary of your recommendations. Thanks to everyone - Mike Frey, Bucknell University, 1996. 1. Statistics for Experimenters by Box, Hunter & Hunter or The History of Statistics by Stigler. These books were the most often recommended.
    2. Edward Tufte's two books on graphics make nice gifts, since they are so artistically put together--one is The Visual Display of Quantitative Information and the other is Envisioning Information.

  • Good Decision Ltd. 5 books that we can recommend . On Statistics for Experimenters they state: "Still unsurpassed for scope, substance, insight. Widely known for being helpful with fractional factorial designs, but it also has good stuff on randomisation, inference, contingency tables, regression, and time series analysis."
