Can you explicit further “two stage simulation”? Thanks.

“More specifically, the statistical model is a recipe for producing random data.” and “Another unique characteristic of this book is that it teaches Bayesian methods before classical (frequentist) methods. This sequencing is quite natural given our emphasis on probability models: The flow from probability, to likelihood, to Bayes, is seamless. Placing Bayesian methods before classical methods also allows for more rounded and thoughtful discussion of the convoluted frequentist-based confidence interval and hypothesis testing concepts.”

Do not have access to the book – did they use direct two stage simulation to work through thier toy example?
