Recently, it was my distinct pleasure to review a first-class book by David Harville, titled Linear Models and the Relevant Distributions and Matrix Algebra.
Here is what I had to say:
"A key problem is that there are no interpretations of these concepts that are at once simple, intuitive, correct, and foolproof. Instead, correct use and interpretation of these statistics requires an attention to detail which seems to tax the patience of working scientists. This high cognitive demand has led to an epidemic of shortcut deﬁnitions and interpretations that are simply wrong, sometimes disastrously so - and yet these misinterpretations dominate much of the scientiﬁc literature."
