Anyone who wishes to elucidate meaningful relationships from data, predict effects of actions and policies, assess explanations modfls reported events, or form theories of causal understanding and causal speech will find this book stimulating and invaluable.
In general, I believe to successfully infer causality from statistical evidence like correlation does require some subject knowledge, additional statistical methods and hard work. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Feb 21, Makoto rated it liked it.
