From the Back Cover

If you have ever looked for P-values by shopping at P mart, tried to watch the Bernoulli Trials on People's Court, or think that the standard deviation is a criminal offense in six states, then you need The Cartoon Guide to Statistics to put you on the road to statistical literacy.

The Cartoon Guide to Statistics covers all the central ideas of modern statistics: the summary and display of all data, probability in gambling and medicine, random variables, Bernoulli Trials, the Central Limit Theorem, hypothesis testing, confidence interval estimation, and much more--all explained in simple, clear, and funny illustrations. Never again will you order the Poisson Distribution in a French restaurant! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 20, 2020
This book was a huge disappointment. I was hoping that the author would use the cartoons to aid the explanations of statistics, but unfortunately this is not the case. The words have been written by a statistician and then a cartoonist who does not understand statistics has read the words and drawn some cartoons in response. As a result, many of the cartoons simply communicate how confusing the explanations are, I have attached some pics as examples. The explanations are not easy to understand and are ironically not aimed at an audience that is new to statistics. There is a lot of assumed knowledge. So, this book is not recommended if you do not already understand statistics. If, however, you understand statistics well and you fancy having a laugh at a cartoonist who (like me) does not understand statistics then by all means give this a read
