Although a wealth of college textbooks in Introductory Statistics is currently available, Ross' book stands out as a unique accomplishment in this category. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, examples and applications from diverse areas, and most importantly, an explanation of intuition and ideas behind the statistical methods. To quote from the preface, "it is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data." Consistent with his other excellent books in Probability and Stochastic Modeling, Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions and examples.

* Hundreds of exercises assess students' conceptual and computational understanding
* Real data sets from current issues draw from a variety of disciplines
