Chow's book makes a provocative contribution to the debate on the role of statistical significance, but it involves some important misconceptions in the presentation of the Fisher and Neyman/Pearson's theories. Moreover, the author's caricature-like considerations about “Bayesianism” are completely irrelevant for discarding the Bayesian statistical theory. These facts call into question the objectivity of his contribution.
