Reviews

This is a fantastic Stat textbook. It's pretty much the only textbook I can actually sit down and read like a novel; it's a pleasure to read and is written very conversationally. The examples are great and presented in a very clear and easy-to-understand manner. I originally bought this for a specific class, but this textbook could help your understanding of Statistics whether it's your class' textbook or not. I highly recommend it.
