So how accurate is a Caustic Cat?

In our last enthralling blog we boldly proclaimed that if we didn’t get a new book out by the end of the year, it would be reasonable to state that we are ‘not really very accurate’.

Well, we didn’t get a new book out.

So are we ‘not really very accurate’?

We have two potential responses to this.  The first is in the spirit of the new politics; just lie about it and blame someone else which is, to be honest, rather appealing.  But that is not the Caustic Cat way.

No, bold lies are not for us.  We prefer a second, rather more sneaky and evasive approach. So how’s this…..

We didn’t get a new book out and so it could be said of us that we were ‘not really very accurate’ but that was last year and, so far this year, we have a 100% accuracy rating, so let’s look to the future and not to the past.  To summarise, we are jolly accurate.

Not great, but it will have to do.

But now, let’s get down to business. News for the new year!

We have a NEW cover for Neil Scott’s “I’m not afraid of Logistic Regression”, the cheeriest introduction to Logistic Regression you are likely to find.  Why the change?  We’re too scared to tell you but it really is a very good reason.

The much delayed and requested “I’m not afraid of Multiple Regression” is still being written – it’s not been forgotten or neglected, oh no, it’s still coming.

We’ve seen a surge in sales for Tim Hooper’s excellent ‘Towards the Heart of Counselling’ – hurrah for Tim – we suggest you bombard us with requests for a follow up volume.

Morgan Twining’s adventure story for reckless children, ‘Nathan and Badger’, is just having it’s cover finalised and is then ready to go.

Finally, it has been pointed out to us by a refreshingly well-informed 12-year-old that one meaning of ‘caustic’ is ‘dissolves flesh’.  We’ll just leave it at that.

Have a splendid 2017
