Dana K. Keller, PhD , has explored Taoism and other Eastern philosophies for more almost five decades, with journeying to and teaching in China and Tibet as parts of that exploration. He embraces two very different worlds, the West with its scientific approach to knowledge and the East with its more balanced approach to experiencing life. In The Tao of Statistics, he presents a way that the two worlds can coexist harmoniously and benefit from each other. His PhD is in measurement, statistics, and program evaluation. After supervising the research component for more than 100 doctoral dissertations and serving as a charter member of Delaware's Panel of Evaluation Experts, he joined the Delmarva Foundation as its chief statistician. During his 7 years serving in that capacity, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services named him as a recommended national resource for the nation's managed care organizations for resolving complex sampling and research issues. His almost unique ability to explain statistical and methodological constructs in everyday language has resulted in his being requested frequently as a presenter and technical expert panel member in the public health community. Now president of Halcyon Research, Inc., he continues to bring his ability to explain statistical concepts simply to an ever-widening audience. He can be reached at email@example.com.
