OK. Obviously not a book for everyone. But if I had to choose one statistics book to take with me on a desert island, this would be the one. (And I've co-authored a statistics book).

Deservedly recognized as a classic. One of the high points of my (professional) life was when I attended a Gordon conference in New Hampshire back in 1984, I got to swim in the same swimming hole with all three authors of this book. Sadly, Bill Hunter died not too long thereafter.

Jenni After taking a college-level high school class on Stats and understanding it all, do you think I'd be able to grasp most of what this book talks about?

I found the subject immensely interesting but I'm afraid that after only taking a year in an intro-level course it'd be a bit over my head.
