About Heinz Kohler

HEINZ KOHLER was born in Berlin, Germany, and came to the United States in the 1950s. Since 1961, he taught Economics as well as Statistics at Amherst College, Massachusetts, and published numerous textbooks on both subjects. Concerned with the proper design and execution of observational studies and controlled experiments––both prone to many potential errors and abuses––he is eager to show how careful scientists can use these statistical procedures to find the truth about health-related claims and how the rest of us, properly equipped with a few statistical tools, can gain crucial insights from the daily flood of medical news, while escaping mere hype and outright lies.
