Fun intro to statistical concepts
on January 22, 2012
This book offers a simple, engaging introduction to key statistical concepts. More advanced students may not encounter any new concepts* but they will be helped by the author's intuitive explanations that make the fundamentals taught in years of statistics and social science courses make sense like never before.
I highly recommended this book, especially for: beginning students looking to get some initial motivation to study statistics or a short, fun intro to key concepts (or eager parents who want to encourage interest in statistics); intermediate/advanced students who want to get more excited by the subject matter or are looking for intuitive explanations of the concepts covered in the book (selection bias, endogeneity, Bayes Theorem); and anyone who wants to seem smart at dinner parties.
