 After the recent debate here on books and piracy which got quite heated at
 times I'm hesitant to suggest this!
 Following numerous requests from colleagues and students to recommend a
 book on statistics for quantitative drug design I wrote one myself in 1995. I
 revised and updated this to make it more generally applicable (and perhaps
 appeal to a wider audience?) and it was published by Wiley in 2009 (ISBN
 978-0-470-85153-1). You can see the contents on my website at
 It might be something that your students find useful and/or may be of some
 help in structuring your course.
