I went back to varsity (part time) this year, studying Applied Maths and Stats. Even with the basics that I now know, going through this book; I can feel that a glass ceiling is broken.
I'm going to print it bit by bit, and study its contents (after my exams). Thanks!

I don't get what is MS doing here.
Considering that the authors are all CS professors or researchers and not statisticians, that makes sense to me why they don't view logistic regression as foundational.
That being said, IMO it's one of the most over-applied techniques around, and it gives many non-technical and technical users the illusion that they understand what's going on in the model...
