Very good introduction to statistics Apr 3, 2008
This is a very good introductory book to statistics written in plain English
instead of formulas. The text is insightful and should be reviewed
carefully by anyone who are interested in studying statistics. This is
in contrast with many other textbooks which throw formulas at you.
Instead of blindly applying formulas, this book really explains well
the assumptions that the science of statistics is based on. I am into mathematical
statistics for over a year and am familiar with probability theory and the
details of probability distributions (at the level of the text book by
Hoagg and Craig). Reading this book help me understand the motivation
behind why mathematical theories are done the way they are. I would
strongly recommend this book to everyone.
