Review:

From the reviews:

"The author uses easy-to-understand explanations, real-world contexts, and a focus on statistical concepts to impart a deeper understanding of the world in which we live. Each chapter is packed with real data and quotes from today’s news media that prepare the reader to think critically about statistics ... . The book is written with non-math, non-science majors in mind and illustrates the core mathematical ideas with interesting, relevant topics." (Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik, May, 2004)
