I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. I highly recommend this book for all who teach stats as well as for all who have an interest in stats. It was interesting to learn about the personal lives of many statisticians in addition to their major contributions to the field. The reading was extremely accessible and engaging. Wish I would have read this much sooner. I'll be able to share more interesting information when teaching stats in the future.

I have learned a lot about many different influential statisticians (e.g., Fisher, Pearson, K., Pearson, E., Neyman just to name a few) - personal lives along with their statistical contributions."
