I will recommend the seller to other buyers. The book is good for the purpose it is required.

Doctors and lawyers must read

by LSterk on Jul 15, 2009

Excellent book that might change your view of the world forever. Especially recommended for anyone who skipped stats in college but is curious about the measured world. Largely told through storytelling about developments first in probabilty and then statistics. Understanding comes from how insight after insight layered up to become usable methods. If nothing else, clearest explanation of why you change doors in Price is Right or switch briefcases in Deal or No Deal.
