I'd like to ask a question in Cross Validated about book recommendations--specifically for statistics books for the mathematically literate (as opposed to many books that are aimed at the math-phobic).

Is this an appropriate question to ask?

  • $\begingroup$ I would not say they are "OK", but "can be tolerated as community wiki.." otherwise you get the "infinite list of X" question with everyone posting their favorite flavor of ice cream.. $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2011 at 1:54

  • $\begingroup$ still, I would seriously hesitate to give this question a blanket no-strings-attached "they are OK". Better to say "OK under certain conditions, but be careful." $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2011 at 10:15
