Description of A Gentle Introduction to Stata
Acock assumes that the user is not familiar with any statistical software. This assumption of a blank slate is central to the structure and contents of the book.
Acock starts with the basics; for example, the part of the book that deals with data management begins with a careful and detailed example of turning survey data on paper into a Stata-ready dataset on the computer.
When explaining how to go about basic exploratory statistical procedures, Acock includes notes that will help the reader develop good work habits.
This mixture of explaining good Stata habits and good statistical habits continues throughout the book.
