Disclosure, I am a bit biased – William G. Hunter was my father. But I agree with this review of Statistics for Experimenters: Design, Innovation, and Discovery , 2nd Edition posted by George Samaras

Superb! If you are involved, in any way, with science or engineering, you need this book on your shelf (after you have carefully read it twice). My only complaint is that I found out about it circuitously reading Prof. Box’s “Improving Almost Anything”; I was curious what the often cited BHH reference was. I think someone should have a word with the publisher’s marketing department; if we don’t know about it, how are we supposed to buy it?

George Box, Stu Hunter and Bill Hunter authored the first edition book in 1978 and the second edition in 2005.

I maintain Statistics for Experimenters web site. Visit the page to find resources, or to let us know about resources (data sets, exercises, etc.) for those using the book.
