In a pleasing and conversational tone, the author uses this brief introductory text to invite the student to join her on a rewarding journey into the often-feared territory of statistics . Rather than emphasizing equations at the expense of understanding, Statistics Unplugged gives students a clear presentation of the material they need to gain a solid grasp of what is involved in the process of statistical reasoning. While avoiding unnecessary jargon, this book uses the process of repetition and cross-referencing chapters to underscore the important concepts. As a result, the student is led, step-by-step, along the path of statistical reasoning.

"The writing is very clear and straightforward, and I appreciate the very casual, conversational tone that the author uses throughout the five chapters (reviewed). I think students are likely to appreciate this, as well, given the fact that this is a topic that the majority of students are intimidated by a the outset."
"This kind of writing is likely to encourage students to keep up with their reading not only because it is personable, but also because the author provides simple, logical descriptions and illustrations of concepts that are easy for the reader to follow. "I appreciate this text's degree of simplicity, straightforwardness and repetition."
"STATISTICS UNPLUGGED is a pleasure to read! It fits beautifully into the teaching method that I use. In a pleasing and conversational tone, the author engages the student to join him on a rewarding journey into the often-feared territory of statistics."
"The author sufficiently covers key concepts without burdening the student with unnecessary statistical jargon."
"The chapters are well organized, easy to read and understand. It gives a good grasp of concepts in a very simplified manner to a beginner in statistics. Students usually memorize these concepts without understanding the real meaning and application of them. This book does a good job in explaining them thoroughly. For example, I like the way the differences between standard deviation and standard error are covered."
