On The Lady Tasting Tea


Jan 14, 2023 : Chapter 1

I have started reading the book The Lady Tasting Tea by David Salsburg. I knew the story of the lady tasting tea from the Stats class. The first chapter is only a few pages on Sir Ronald Fisher. I have read about his works on agriculture. But, I had not paid attention about his disagreement on Mendel's data ("too good to be true"). I see that there have been analyses, papers, and books on the topic Fisher and Mendel. On to that now. Overall, the chapter focus on the importance of experimental design.
