I really enjoyed working through this book. Not really to the level of a graduate quantitative studies program but was great to do practical examples and understand 'baby' statistics. Wish there was a next level book as well.

The author did a fairly decent job of explaining statistics to a non-math reader. There were certain times I felt significantly more overwhelmed (I'm looking at you regression analysis), but I now understand conceptually what statistics are supposed to do before we put our own biases in.

Recommends it for: intro stats students,graduate students
So one might ask, why put a statistics book on your reading list or even bother to review it? This book is awesome! I recommend it to anyone needing an introduction to statistics. It makes learning stats interesting and easily digestible to the non-math oriented individual. I am now fascinated with the subject of stats thanks to this book!

The concepts are presented with typical clarity, but Caldwell persistently assumes an unenthusiastic, pessimistic, and impatient reader, the the recurring reminders of this are annoying to the person reading the book out of a desire and determination to learn, and may serve as an excuse for not being more engaging.
