From the Author
I wrote this book for a class I developed at Olin College. The goal of the class is to teach students to use statistical tools to explore real datasets and answer interesting questions. The webpage for the class is here: sites.google.com/site/thinkstats2011a --- it includes my lecture notes, in-class exercises, homeworks, etc.
The examples in this book are in Python, but it is a simple subset of Python. If you have read the first 14 chapters of Think Python, you are ready to go.
