35 of 35 people found the following review helpful By Michael R. Chernick on February 9, 2008
Format: Paperback
This was the first of many well written introductory texts by David Moore. It is now in its fourth edition and in paperback form it is very reasonably priced. Moore emphasizes the concepts and not the computational aspects and mathematics. This helps undergraduate students in any discipline to become statistically literate. Moore is both a Professor of Statistics at Purdue University and an educator. He has also served as President of the American Statistical Association. Known for his clear writing style, he has led the way in training statistics to the masses. This book was his first attempt (very successful) and it has been followed by many others including the most recent text which takes an activity-based approach to teaching.
Among the concepts presented are: (1) sampling and randomization, (2) why experiment and what designs to use, (3) measurement accuracy, (4) understanding relationships (contingency tables, scatterplots, correlation and regression), (5)index numbers (CPI), (6) the role of government statistics, (7) understanding changes over time, (8) probability, (9) probability through simulation and (10) inference including confidence intervals for means and proportions. The text includes many useful exercises which enhance understanding.

Also many nice cartoons are included for humor and enhancing explanations. One cartoon shows a team with seven basketball players of which 6 a short and one is very tall. In the caption the publicists asks the coach "Should we scare the opposition by announcing our mean height or lull them by announcing our median height?

27 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Charles Ashbacher HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 12, 2005
Format: Paperback
While this book is very readable, the level of difficulty does not reach a height equal to my needs. I teach a course in basic statistics at the college level and we cover inference, regression, probability models, chi-square and ANOVA. All but ANOVA are covered here, but the depth of coverage is very shallow. That is no more evident than when you examine the tables at the end of the book. There are only two, one of random digits and the other contains the values of the normal distribution from -3.4 to 3.4 in one-tenth increments. No tables of t-scores, chi-square or any other statistical test.

Only eighty pages are devoted to inference, covering confidence intervals through two-way tables. There are many diagrams and blurbs in the margins, but few formulas. There are exercises at the end of the sections and solutions to the odd-numbered ones are given in an appendix. What is covered in the book is very well presented, however the depth of coverage is so shallow as to render it useless for anything but a very general survey course of how statistics is used in the modern world.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Twain on October 6, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is simplest book I have encountered in my undergraduate career. It is realistically at a 7th or 8th grade level. Many of the questions and concepts are staggeringly easy, with a focus on basic issues involving methods and presentation. I am EXTREMELY bad at math. This book would not be suited for anyone involved in any field that uses statistics or that is technical in any respect because you will not learn a whole lot unless you are totally unfamiliar with anything involving numbers. In fact, if you have had a rigorous introduction to economics, psychology, or even sociology, you will breeze right through this book. It is extremely clearly written and some questions are somewhat thought-provoking. Its simplicity also builds confidence.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first came across the fourth edition of this book, and immediately fell in love with both the book and the subject matter. When I pursued graduate study, I picked up a copy of the fifth edition of the book, and routinely gave statistical advice based on its contents to eager recipients. While in grad school, I lent my copy of the fifth edition to a friend struggling to understand statistical concepts even at a rudimentary level (as did most of the students in the program) and she never gave it back- that's how good it was (she later told me that after leaving her hands, it quickly found its way to several other students' hands).

The book's success rests solely on two important things- a clear, concise, and sometimes witty presentation of statistical basics, and a minimum of mathematical computation, formulae and Greek letters. This book teaches statistical conepts, their appropriate use, their limitations and most importantly, their abuse. Saying that the text is 'statistics lite' is disrespectful, but saying that the text helps to promote the use of thinking and reasoning when faced with statistics is giving it high praise.

While most books on the market emphasize often mindless mathematical computation and the manipulation of arcane formulae, this book eschews that and focuses solely on making sense of statistics, principally those stats that others have generated. Make no mistake: this is not a text for number crunchers, those looking to generate statistics (for this, consult Moore's excellent textbook, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics).
