Book Review of Observation and Experiment

Book review of “Observation and Experiment” (author Paul Rosenbaum)

The economist Paul Samuelson said, “My belief is that nothing that can be expressed by mathematics cannot be expressed by careful use of literary words.” Paul Rosenbaum brings this perspective to causal inference in his new book Observation and Experiment: An Introduction to Causal Inference (Harvard University Press, 2017). The book is a luminous presentation of concepts and strategies for causal inference with a minimum of technical material.
