Principles and Procedures of Statistics: A Biometrical Approach has been
around for several editions. My copy from the 1970's does not include the

Suggestions for a statistics text
Please respond to
I had one course on statistics (more years ago than I would care to
remember) and I've been using SAS in various ways since about 1980. Most
of what I do can probably be better dignified as data analysis rather
than statistical analysis. I have a rough and ready understanding of
statistics that might be implied by all that but despite being an old
dog I'd like to learn a few new tricks before I retire.
In that spirit I wonder if anybody can recommend a stats textbook that
might serve my purposes? I'm particularly interested in learning a bit
more about regression and time series. Nobody wants to waste $ on
training for old dogs but maybe a good book could fill the gap.
