I found the plot rather scattered and confusing. Half the characters are Greek, which makes it really hard to follow what’s going on and who is who. In particular, I found Pearson, Spearman and LeRegression to be somewhat underdeveloped, even though one might argue they are central to the story. However, I wouldn’t hesitate recommending this book to any student of human relations, since it has a lot of instructive material to offer here.
I haven't read any other statistics books, and after this I don't think I will. It made no sense at the end it just seemed like they were mixing words and equations.
Even if you've completely forgotten high school math like me, this textbook will catch you up in no time. It really broke statistics down into logical steps with (what I really appreciated) explanations as well as examples.

Recommended to Joecolelife by:
Easy to read and understand, easy help on homework problems on odd numbers (let's you check figures), simplifies statistics (however, I would've preferred that the book actually uses the actual signs of the formula rather than use letters in place of a formula). Overall, its a great book and would definitely recommend it.
