Dear Stata experts,

Why don´t you write down a book "Stata for dummies"?

Current available books on Stata are insufficient for non-statisticians
researchers. Most examples on Stata programming are ridiculous.
Furthermore, there is no book commenting on common errors and problems
when running analyses with Stata. You could use the Statalist to summarize
the 100 most common problems/errors in Stata, put them together,
illustrate with nice examples and drawings, add things you think are
important and, finnaly, a "Stata for dummies" shows up.

Then, you could come out with "Beginning Stata Programming For Dummies"
and, eventually, "Stata - All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies" or
something like that.

Best,

Tiago
