“I can speak from experience when I say you should see Lynda before writing Chapter 3, to save heartache and headache in writing Chapter 4. I recommend working with a statistician right from the start to help formulate the questions and set up the methodology.  Lynda Idleman not only has the capability to perform the statistical analysis but also the breadth of experience to ask the right questions at the right time.”

"I consider Lynda a teacher, as well as a consultant, because I learned so much from the experience. It was like independent study with a statistician."
