Klein goes one step further, turning graphs into a collection of tiny drawings: Klein grounds the whole thing into a narrative-based presentation to keep it from being too dry, and even amusing.
I know, unthinkable! If this is how I learned math, my life would probably be much different. It is fun, clear, and wonderfully intuitive.

Paperback Verified Purchase. I have been recommending this book to my public policy doctoral students for a decade, and used to assign a chapter as supplemental background reading in my econ class when we covered Bayes rule. Now that I'm teaching a section of our MPA stats course, it is a required reading.
I wouldn't want this to be the only book my students read on stats, but I think it is an extremely useful supplement. I always needed to read three textbooks in parallel when I was learning this stuff. He pulls out the core ideas in a parsimious, readable, and humorous fashion.
It is an old book, but intro stats is still intro stats.

This book is not "bad". Sadly, it isn't too great either. A great deal of time is spent explaining the principles behind statistical conceptions, though only the most basic topics are actually addressed and a reader possessing no familiarity with the subject matter would still not be able to use statistics or even remotely understand principles like standard error, sampling distributions, etc.
If you are thinking of buying this, please don't use this as your main source of research --the other "Cartoon Guide to Statistics" by Gonick is a much more thorough, albeit slightly more challenging, read.
I'd recommend it in conjunction with other educational resources like Khan Academy. This should be saved for those folks that are barred from the Ferris wheel due to height restrictions. To me statistics is a thoroughly fascinating study of how to put information about almost any subject which deals with controversial or otherwise variables in perspective.
However, I have family and friends who illogically fear the undertaking of this study more than a root canal without anesthesia. It is for those that this book was written.
It very gently leads the reader into the basics of the subject in an extremely friendly and non-threatening comic book format which, in all honesty, is actually humorous with some truly hilarious puns throughout the dialogue. This is a terrific book.
I am using it to teach a year old the concepts. It is ideal for this type of teaching.
It is extremely clear and uses excellent, concrete examples to illustrate the points. I got a copy of this after seeing it reviewed in Scientific American. Although I have had statistics classes and used the fundamentals for years, this book brought back the fundamentals of statistics. It really helps you visualize the data and how to best apply the tools.
I am getting copies for everyone who works for me. Lucky them. Read The Cartoon Guide to Statistic A Com Embed Size px.
