Product Description
Darrell Huff runs the gamut of every popularly used type of statistic, probes such things as the sample study, the tabulation method, the interview technique, or the way the results are derived from the figures, and points up the countless number of dodges which are used to fool rather than inform.Amazon.com Review
"There is terror in numbers," writes Darrell Huff in How to Lie withStatistics. And nowhere does this terror translate to blind acceptanceof authority more than in the slippery world of averages, correlations,graphs, and trends. Huff sought to break through "the daze that follows thecollision of statistics with the human mind" with this slim volume, firstpublished in 1954. The book remains relevant as a wake-up call for peopleunaccustomed to examining the endless flow of numbers pouring fromWall Street, Madison Avenue, and everywhere else someone has an axe togrind, a point to prove, or a product to sell. "The secret language ofstatistics, so appealing in a fact-minded culture, is employed tosensationalize, inflate, confuse, and oversimplify," warns Huff.

Although many of the examples used in the book are charmingly dated, thecautions are timeless. Statistics are rife with opportunities for misuse,from "gee-whiz graphs" that add nonexistent drama to trends, to "results"detached from their method and meaning, to statistics' ultimatebugaboo--faulty cause-and-effect reasoning. Huff's tone is tolerant andamused, but no-nonsense. Like a lecturing father, he expects you to learn something useful from the book, and start applying it every day.Never be a sucker again, he cries!

Even if you can't find a source of demonstrable bias,allow yourself some degree of skepticism about the results as long as thereis a possibility of bias somewhere. There always is.

Read How to Lie with Statistics. Whether you encounter statistics atwork, at school, or in advertising, you'll remember its simple lessons.Don't be terrorized by numbers, Huff implores. "The fact is that, despiteits mathematical base, statistics is as much an art as it is a science."--Therese Littleton ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Brevity is the soul...
I got this book for a course in college back in the late 60's. I thought it was a great book then and I believe it is even more important today. We are bombarded with stats every day in every way. This little book helps cut through the lies and deceit that masquerade as fact today. Whether it's in a contracted poll or sifting through data supplied by the government, stats are used to lead us in one direction or another. Get this little gem and enjoy the old-fashioned graphics and the simple message. How to Lie With Statistics is a keeper. I lent my copy to a physician years ago and have regretted it ever since. He kept it and moved from the area. Argh.

5-0 out of 5 stars Or...How to not get fooled by statistics.
I really enjoyed the book and I thought that the material was well presented and well researched. Darrell Huff seems to be exceedingly versed and extremely knowledgeable in statistics. Despite that, he does a great job at making the material easy to understand and follow without sounding condescending or delving into too much statistical jargon. The majority of material in the book deals with how statistics are sometimes used to deceive people and distort data for cynical purposes. Each chapter deals with a different method of how someone might mislead or fool others with statistics and with each method the author gives many examples and he thoroughly explains each one and how they are deceptive. Also, he uses some wonderful illustrations that demonstrate the different types of deceptive line and bar graphs. He uses these illustrations in order for the reader to better visualize exactly what he is trying to convey. The only downside to the book that I could think of, if you could even call it a downside, more like a drawback, is that it is rather outdated. A lot of his examples come from articles that were in some very highly regarded magazines at that time, and even now, such as Time, Harpers, Literary Digest, and Fortune. Even so, most of the examples are very old and difficult to completely put into perspective because they deal with things that are much different now then they were then. Nevertheless, the issues and subject matter presented in the book are still very relevant today as they were back then, seeing as some of the same deceptive statistics that are described in the book are still being used today, even among a few of the more reputable news media outlets on TV and in print. The last chapter is probably the most important because it gives the reader some worthy ammunition for recognizing and refuting questionable or suspicious statistical claims, i.e., the author goes back and tackles each topic in order to give the reader some tools to help spot and properly question statistics that are intentionally or inadvertently dubious. I highly recommend for everyone to read this book because it teaches an especially valuable lesson of why it is important to always be skeptical of statistical claims no matter where they come from.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not mind blowing at all
Maybe I expected too much from this book. I thought this book could give me more insight into the dangers of statistical interpretations or the wrongful use of statistics. This book didn't help me at all with that. It's all very (very) basic stuff people should watch out for, when using statistics. Most of this I already knew. I think for anybody who has already red a book from Nicholas Taleb (or anything alike) this book will not present any new material.

To people completely new to statistics, this book might be helpfull, but to those who frequently use statistics for their jobs or in their free time, this book won't add any value. There are much better books on statistics out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic intro to Statistics
Love this little book.I recommend it to anyone starting to study statistics, or to arm themselves as a citizen or a consumer.Fun, easy to read and very important.I first read it as a supplement to my college statistics class over 35 years ago and have read it at least a couple times since.It's timeless.

4-0 out of 5 stars How to lie with statistics
I have just finish reading this book and, in my opinion, I thought that it is a very simple and funny whey to learn statistic.
However, for people who intend to purchase something with more details about tests and analyses, I don't recommend this book.

If you have ever looked for P-values by shopping at P mart, tried to watch the Bernoulli Trials on "People's Court," or think that the standard deviation is a criminal offense in six states, then you need The Cartoon Guide to Statistics to put you on the road to statistical literacy.

The Cartoon Guide to Statistics covers all the central ideas of modern statistics: the summary and display of data, probability in gambling and medicine, random variables, Bernoulli Trails, the Central Limit Theorem, hypothesis testing, confidence interval estimation, and much more--all explained in simple, clear, and yes, funny illustrations. Never again will you order the Poisson Distribution in a French restaurant! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Cartoon Guide to Statistics
I really am enjoying this book and it puts the humor factor into struggling through a Statistics class at a local university.I would recommend it for both the information and for the comic relief when Statistics gets just TOO stressful!
I have to say that service was excellent...I received the book in just a few days after ordering it and it was in excellent, brand new condition.

4-0 out of 5 stars Serious yet not that practical
The content is of high quality and complex. This is not yet another statistics for dummies. If you have no background on statistics, you will be challenged reading this book. It doesn't water-down statistical concepts too much. It gives the conceptual (as opposed to totally quantitative view) of statistics in a cartoon format with plenty of well-thought out examples (both real life and hypothetical).

The downfall of this book, of course, is that it doesn't provide statistical practice problems and solutions. In my humble opinion, the best way to learn statistics, or any other quantitative subject, is through lot of practice and mental challenges. Although your conceptual understanding of statistics will be enhanced through this book, your actual applicable knowledge of statistics may still remain stagnant.

This might be a good first book or even a good review of statistics. But certainly, this book is not adequate for those who want to learn statistics for application to real data.

Still, this is immensely well contemplated book and I must congratulate the authors for creating a thought provoking statistics overview book without too many statistical equations and problems. I also enjoyed the cartoons and humor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful!!!!
I wish I had known about this book, the first time, I took Statistics. This book is helpful because it puts the formulas and problems in a more layman type explanation. My last instructor had a degree in mechanical enigineering & statistics; therefore, she taught the class as if everyone was on her level of knowledge with this crazy math!!! I love this book!! It is worth the money!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Comforting Cartoon Therapy for the Statphobic
This book was listed as an optional textbook for an introductory statistics class, placing it on a shelf in the campus bookstore next to a book I needed to buy.My eye was attracted by the cartoon cover and, after a quick scan, I decided to buy it.It was worth it.

Larry Gonick and Woollcott Smith cover the same content as many introductory statistics books.The eleven core chapters cover basic statistical concepts, the nature of data, and the essentials of probability, random variables, distributions, sampling, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, comparing samples, designing experiments and regression.It is a lot of material that flows quickly.The final chapter introduces "a biased sample" of advanced statistical techniques.A bibliography--reasonably up-to-date when the book was published--points the reader on to further learning about statistics.

The book's title gives the fun part away.The authors use the panel-by-panel presentation style and humorous asides of cartoons as their primary mode of presentation.This works surprisingly well.It makes readers--particularly those intimidated by statistics--comfortable and ready to just read the panels.An instructionally useful side effect is the repeated use of graphical rather than textual definitions of statistical concepts.The tongue-in-cheek humor reinforces the relaxing experience of reading cartoons and eases the learning experience.

I have never required this book as a text for a statistics class.But I have listed it as an optional text and I have loaned it to a student or two.It is good therapy for those afraid of their first statistics class.And it's a fun read for those who have already passed this hurdle.

One Diagnostic and five full-length Advanced Placement Practice Exams are presented in the manual with all questions answered and explained. Equally valuable to prospective test takers is the author?s 15-chapter topic review, covering virtually everything they will encounter on the actual exam.

Additional multiple-choice and free-response questions with answers are presented at the end of all 15 chapters. Detailed appendices include exam-taking advice, an AP scoring guide, a guide to basic uses ofTI-83/TI-84 calculators, and more. This manual may be purchased alone or with an optional CD-ROM containing two additional full-length practice exams, giving students a total of eight practice exams.

This is my first time buying on Amazon, and it was great. I can't believe how fast the book came, and it's in amazing condition. Thank you.(I hope my other 2 orders arrive the same way:)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great supplement to Stats Textbook
I found this book great review for the topics covered on the AP exam. After going through the textbook chapter, i would usually read the Barrons to reinforce it.But I must admit that the Barrons summary of the topics are a little brief, and might be confusing if you do not know what they are talking about. I would not recommend solely reading Barrons, but rather reading your textbook (or possibly 5 Steps to a 5) to understand the topic first before going to Barrons. Barrons always adds more in depth explanations and key points that may have not been included in the textbook.

As for the practice questions, they are really well written. Though they seem hard, and are actually harder than the ones on the official exam, they prepare you well. If you can answer these questions, you are going to ace the real ones.

I would highly recommend this book (along with your textbook) to prepare for the exam.

I used this book to supplement my college textbook. I found it useful because it explained concepts to me in a different way. The book is an easier read than a college textbook, however it hardly goes into any depth. Also, I learn best through examples.

Product Description
In the numbers explosion all around us in our modern-day dealings, the buzzword is data, as in, “Do you have any data to support your claim?” “The data supported the original hypothesis that . . .” and “The data bear this out. . . .” But the field of statistics is not just about data.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Smart Use of Time
    I escaped to this book after trying to grasp confusing "overview" material in another book. Deborah Rumsey explains the basics in an unintimidating, conversational tone. I'm seriously considering getting the companion workbook because doing exercises actually sounds like *fun.* Statistics? Fun? Who would have thought...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Statistics for Dummies
    "Statistics for Dummies" by Deborah Rumsey is an Exceptional book! I completed statistics at both the undergraduate and graduate level and did not enjoy the courses! This book completely changed my attitude about statistics for the better! The book is well written and is logically broken down with each chapter focusing on specific statistical subjects! One thing I like about the book is that each chapter can stand on it's own. This book would be great to help prepare a student for an upcoming statistics course and is certainly better written than most college statistics textbooks I have seen. In fact, it might be a good idea if college/university statistics professors made this book a mandatory companion to the textbook they already use. Of course if any reader of this book feels the subject matter is not advanced enough, they may also purchase "Statistics 2 for Dummies" by the same author. Finally, the book was actually fun to read with much more "personality" than other books covering roughly the same subject matter.

    3-0 out of 5 stars An "okay" book on statistics
    This book is generally an easy read and that may be its biggest plus. It is not so hard to read compared to other books on statistics. However, the book is too focused on polls instead of giving a general overview of the subject of statistics. On top of that it is not very well structured. It seems the sequence of the chapters is a bit random. The book does not flow in a logical and clear sequence.

    Product Description

    This inexpensive paperback provides a brief, simple overview of statistics to help readers gain a better understanding of how statistics work and how to interpret them correctly. Each chapter describes a different statistical technique, ranging from basic concepts like central tendency and describing distributions to more advanced concepts such as t tests, regression, repeated measures ANOVA, and factor analysis. Each chapter begins with a short description of the statistic and when it should be used. This is followed by a more in-depth explanation of how the statistic works. Finally, each chapter ends with an example of the statistic in use, and a sample of how the results of analyses using the statistic might be written up for publication. A glossary of statistical terms and symbols is also included.

    New features in the third edition include:

    A new chapter on Factor and Reliability Analysis especially helpful to those who do and/or read survey research.

    New "Writing it Up" sections demonstrate how to write about and interpret statistics seen in books and journals.

    A website at http://www.psypress.com/statistics-in-plain-english with PowerPoint presentations, interactive problems (including an overview of the problem's solution for Instructors) with an IBM SPSS dataset for practice, videos of the author demonstrating how to calculate and interpret most of the statistics in the book, links to useful websites, and an author blog.

    New section on understanding the distribution of data (ch. 1) to help readers understand how to use and interpret graphs.

    Many more examples, tables, and charts to help students visualize key concepts.

    Statistics in Plain English, 3rd Edition is an ideal supplement for statistics, research methods, and/or for courses that use statistics taught at the undergraduate or graduate level, or as a reference tool for anyone interested in refreshing their memory about key statistical concepts. The research examples are from psychology, education, and other social and behavioral sciences.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mistakes cause frustration
    I find this book overrated for the following reasons

    - There are numerous mistakes in formulas and calculations that lead to frustration (page 51, 72, ...). When you see something later that you do not understand, you are not sure if it is because the author didn't proof read his own document or because you are misunderstanding something. This leads to a lot of wasted time trying to understand something that turns out to be a mistake.
    - In his attempts to explain "effect size" he uses an example in which "we probably would not actually want to calculate and effect size"
    - He explains a lot how to do things but not much about why they are done that way.
    - I found the sections on sampling distributions and standard errors poorly explained and have read other books that help you understand these concepts much quicker

    Basically, for me, this books selling point was its title. I found it to be a waste of time and recommend starting with one of the many better books out there with the same idea.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very accessible introduction.
    I have not worked through the whole book yet, but the chapters that I have read are clear and very easy to understand. The glossary of terms at the end of each chapter is excellent. Definitions provided by my lecturer often make little sense to me, but in this book, it is truly in plain English. This book increases my confidence in my ability to work with statistics.

    The Kindle edition obviously does not come with the CD, but I found that the CD is available for free download online (legally, from the publisher's website). The CD contains interactive problems and PowerPoint presentations of each chapter, so it is a good companion to the book.


    I passed my statistics course, thanks to this book.The Kindle edition contains several errors, clearly made during the electronic conversion process.For example, some characters weren't converted correctly, so that it becomes difficult to distinguish between + (addition) and ÷ (division) symbols.These types of errors mostly occur in the example equations.When they didn't make sense, I read the text again to figure out what the examples were supposed to look like.Despite such minor glitches, the book was very helpful, particularly so for being a searchable Kindle ebook.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Mr. Urden!
    As a grad student in psychology, a statistics and measurements course is mandatory. I was making myself a little crazy...ok...VERY crazy...trying to understand the language and the concepts. A friend recommended this book so I checked it out. Much to my delight, I was able to download it to my Kindle. I started reviewing the textbook, and OMG! I was THRILLED to discover that not only was the book writted in easy to understand language, I actually understood what the heck the author was talking about. Thank you, Mr. Urden. I am no longer one of the psychology grad students over the age of 30 who pulls out her hair when she hears the word "statistic." How's that for a population? :-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent choice
    It is the best book I could have ever bought. I am feeling a lot more confident with statistics.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Getting the right book always matters, this is the right book
    I sometimes wonder if I'm dumb or if books are poorly written.Well at least in statistics, I believe that it's the way textbooks are written.This book is extremely well-written.A few trivial typos here and there, but overall the guy has a knack for explaining the big picture.These days with computer-based stats packages, knowing how to calculate each value is great, but interpretation is what most of us will be doing.I feel much more confident about statistics after having read this book.

    My critique is that it should have more thorough coverage b/c the guy is very good at teaching.Being a good teacher is much more important than being a genius.That's why these vaunted faculty are typically terrible teachers.You don't get a strangehold on genius and good teaching ability very often. ...

    I had no problems with this order. It came in a timely manner and it was in great shape -- as promised.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good primer for college-level statistics courses.
    I've been good at math my whole life. Of all the math disciplines, however, statistics is the one that has taken me the longest to grasp. The many concepts and formulas are not stored in memory overnight, and can often seem discouraging. Hence, I strongly recommend reading The Complete Idiot's Guide to Statistics as either a primer, or as a supplement, to the statistics textbook for your class. For one thing, the price is much cheaper than a textbook. The informal writing style, laced with humorous personal examples by the author throughout the book, makes this introduction to statistics much more digestible than a college textbook. I spent five days reading this book from cover to cover, because I needed a crash course. I was able to do this because this book is concise compared to a college textbook.

    Before you begin reading this book, make sure to download the errata page available on the book's website. After doing this, I still noticed several minor mistakes printing errors scattered throughout the book. However, I was able to pencil in the revisions myself. I just didn't feel like e-mailing them in to the author at the book's website.

    Product Description

    Mario Triola’s Elementary Statistics remains the market-leading introductory statistics textbook because it engages readers with an abundance of real data in the examples, applications, and exercises. Statistics is all around us in our daily lives, and Triola is dedicated to finding new real-world examples and data sets that make sense for today’s reader. The Eleventh Edition contains more than 2000 exercises, 87% of which are new, and 82% of which use real data. It also contains hundreds of examples, 86% of which are new and 94% of which use real data. By analyzing real data, students are able to connect abstract concepts to the world at large. As a result, they gain conceptual understanding and learn to think statistically, using the same methods that professional statisticians employ.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ok
    Product came in a timely manner but I wasn't expecting all the 'used' stickers decorating it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars another overpriced textbook
    This is a popular and required text for most Statistics courses.It's a decent read, and as textbooks go, it's pretty good.Although I had an older edition of this book, I was required to purchase the newer (and costlier) edition for my independent-study course, so that my text would correspond to the instructor's. While this was just a nuisance for me, the whole billion-dollar textbook racket is just that -- a racket.It is making a needless dent in parents' pocketbooks and down the line will probably result in spinal-column and back problems for the masses of students who have to lug around these needlessly hefty and expensive books.

    As a h.s. science teacher, I've reviewed new editions of textbooks and compared them to the older editions.What I have found:Often, there is a tiny bit of new info in the newer texts, a few new problems, and a new "appearance".One major publisher took the older version,juggled around and renumbered the problems at the end of the chapter, switched a few sections from the main part of the text with sections in the Appendix, put on a different cover, reformatted some pics,... and voila' ... a new edition.It's always bigger and weighs more than the older edition, so the price is more.The old storyline that the pretty glossy pictures will engage the students is pure baloney!!

    My old college chem book from the 70's (UMASS) sold for $10 new, $2.70 used.No glossy pics, but all the info was there and it's half the size and weight of current h.s. texts. A few years ago, a Japanese foreign exchange student showed me her h.s. chem book from Japan: All the topics were explained, plenty of practice probs, and the book was softcover about 6" x 9" and about 1/2" thick.

    As I see some poor freshmen (esp. the girls) struggling to walk with these heavy books on their backs, I wonder --why are parents not outraged?

    2-0 out of 5 stars Statistics book
    Did not care for this statistics book - felt I had to do online research to supplement it. Not clearly written and not all inclusive.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand
    This book is straightforward. The examples clearly demonstrate the concepts, formulas, and definitions. I'm using this book for self guided study in order to pass a statistics competency test. I feel confident after going through this text.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice summary of statistics before taking on a course in the subject.
    This book provides a nice summary of statistics, prior to engaging in actual coursework. After reading it and completing all of the practice problems, it serves as a handy reference to supplement your textbook and homework problems. Personally, I've re-read it several times, since the knowledge isn't retained overnight. Whenever I'm rusty on a particular topic, I'll re-read that chapter. While finishing the guide is a good place to begin a study of statistics, you need to continue on to other, more comprehensive sources next. After completing this book, I next read The Complete Idiot's Guide to Statistics, 2nd Edition, which took my understanding to the next level. Now my college textbook makes so much more sense to me, and is easier to digest. This CliffsQuickReview of Statistics is limited in scope, especially with more advanced topics. It does touch a bit on correlation, linear regression, and chi-square testing. However, it doesn't get into topics such as goodness of fit, analysis of variance (ANOVA), and the F distribution.

    Product Description

    Andy Field’s self-deprecating, vivacious but yet easy to understand writing style has won him many plaudits, and now an award from the British Psychological Society (2007), for his irreplaceable Discovering Statistics Using SPSS. The Third Edition is now even more accessible to the introductory student at the very beginning of their statistical journey. The textbook now uniquely walks students from very basic to advanced level concepts, all the while grounding knowledge though the use of SPSS.

    Accompanied by an improved Companion Web site at www.sagepub.co.uk/field3e including animated “SPSS walk-throughs” of tests discussed in the textbook; assessment materials and datasets pertinent to lecturers/instructors in Business & Management and Health Sciences; and a suite of other materials for lecturers/instructors and students as per the 2nd Edition. The original CD-Rom materials are now found on this Web site as well.

    The company sent me the wrong item and wouldn't refund my money. Correspondence with the company ended after the 1st email. They responded to my first sent email but nothing followed. I mentioned that I've bought books from them in the past, so it doesn't seem like they really care about their customers but rather just their money. Sounds like a good deal, right?

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not recomended
    I am a big fan of conversational writing style, but literally 20% or more of this book is simply the author trying to have a cute conversation.The book is written as if the audience was composed of nothing but children.Furthermore in the very first chapter the author mis defines the word 'theory'.A theory is not a guess, it is not an hypothesis. It is a model based on many facts.

    Beyond that problem, an alarmingly large portion of this book is just the author rambling on with anecdotes he thinks are funny.All those anecdotes do is distract one from the statistics.I would think he could cull about 200 pages of needless drivel, and make a much more effective book.

    I do not recomend this book at all.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great shape wonderful resource
    My book arrived in great shape and it was early. The book itself is beautifully written in terms of simplicity and great examples. Statistics is taught conceptually so that it is possible to see what you are learning and apply it rather than relying on rote memorization or disconnected mathematical formulas. Class mates suggested this book at the beginning of stats but I was doing fine with the standard text book. Regrettably I had little idea of how the statistics worked in a whole sphere. This book helped with that

    5-0 out of 5 stars Look no further--this book has it all!
    Most stats and SPSS books are incomplete and/or difficult to understand, as if the authors are the keepers of this mysterious knowledge, and it can only be shared in the classroom.This book, however, has everything.The FULL explanation of every type of analysis, what all of the terms mean, step-by-step instructions in SPSS RE: how to run the analysis, with pictures of the windows in SPSS, plus pictures of every output box and a clear explanation of what's in the output.FINALLY!Plus, it's actually a pretty engaging read, with some humor and personal stories to keep your interest.For all that you get, it's an excellent value; high recommended!

    Offering the most accessible approach to statistics, with a strong visual/graphical emphasis, this book offers a vast number of examples on the premise that students learn best by "doing". The fourth edition features many updates and revisions that place increased emphasis on interpretation of results and critical thinking in addition to calculations.  This emphasis on "statistical literacy" is reflective of the GAISE recommendations.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Accessible and instructive
    This is a great book for learning basic statistics and the scientific method without getting too bogged down in higher math. Don't be scared by the cover - much of the book is in prose - and highly readable prose at that. It provides very useful examples for understanding the basics of statistical models and experimental design. Definitely a great way to ease into an intimidating but important subject.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic learning for statistics
    The book is a classic. It is well written and explains basics of statistics very well -The language is very simple and the concepts explained are easy to grasp.

    When I initially looked at this textbook, I was disappointed that it has the least extensive number of statistical tests described. There is only a passing mention of Fisher's exact test, no logistic regression, etc. However the examples are by far the best I've seen in any textbook (even non statistics books) and they are very helpful in understanding statistical pitfalls. They make you think more than most advanced texts. The clarity of writing is superb. Since many statistical problems are due to the setup and reasoning of studies, rather than picking the wrong text, this textbook will go far to enable the reader to more critically understand the methodology of studies. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars very condensed
    This book and the way it's advertised make it seem like an idiot's guide to Stats. However, it's not. It's actually pretty dense for that. It is a great supplement to a Stats class. It cuts through a lot of the nonsense and verbiage of many stats texts. I'd suggest using this to supplement the class (after lectures etc). It's also great to refresh yourself on basic stats and probability concepts once you've taken a course. I just wish it had more diagrams and pictures of the various distributions.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good book!
    I really love this book. The packaging is super nice.. There was no single damage to my book.. I just LOVE it

    2-0 out of 5 stars Riddled with Typos
    I thought the material covered in this book was excellent and the examples are very good as well, but there was just one problem....riddled with typos.I noticed the first one on a Supplementary Problem in the the first chapter: the given answer was way off. Then in the 2nd chapter I noticed on another practice problem that there was an addition sign instead of an equal sign.Issues like this popped up for me through the FIRST 5 CHAPTERS!!!! If you are just learning some of this material it can be extremely frustrating because one symbol or number that is off may cause you to rack your brain for hours trying to figure out if it's the book or you that is wrong. Because most students blindly trust books this can cause a real hiccup in your studies.When I finally got fed up with the book I had to call McGraw Hill to see if they could exchange it for one without all the errors. Because I didn't purchase it directly from them (as most individual students purchase books from a store) they said there is nothing they could do for me except inform the editors.When I asked them if they accept any product liability on their part their response was: "If you buy food from one grocery store you can't return it at another". I urge you that if you are learning this material for the first time STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK.I gave this book 2 Stars because the content and explanations were pretty good, but the typos eventually became too much to overlook.

    Product Description

    The Basic Practice of Statistics has become a bestselling textbook by focusing on how statistics are gathered, analyzed, and applied to real problems and situations—and by confronting student anxieties about the course’s relevance and difficulties head on.

    With David Moore’s pioneering "data analysis" approach (emphasizing statistical thinking over computation), engaging narrative and case studies, current problems and exercises, and an accessible level of mathematics, there is no more effective textbook for showing students what working statisticians do and what accurate interpretations of data can reveal about the world we live in.

    In the new edition, you will once again see how everything fits together. As always, Moore’s text offers balanced content, beginning with data analysis, then covering probability and inference in the context of statistics as a whole. It provides a wealth of opportunities for students to work with data from a wide range of disciplines and real-world settings, emphasizing the big ideas of statistics in the context of learning specific skills used by professional statisticians. Thoroughly updated throughout, the new edition offers new content, features, cases, data sources, and exercises, plus new media support for instructors and students—including the latest version of the widely-adopted StatsPortal.

    The full picture of the contemporary practice of statistics has never been so captivatingly presented to an uninitiated audience.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product, exactly as it said in the description
    This product was great, it was exactly as described in the description. I prefer hardbound books over paperback, which was why I was buying it in the first place. The shipper was fast (about a week, I live on the West Coast) and I would do business with them again.

    Ugh.Not a very helpful book for newcomers to statistics.This text was specified for an onilne course I was going to take, but I decided that unlike algebra, I was simply not going to be able to figure it out without being in a classroom.With a better book, perhaps, I could have done it. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lied about attached CD-rom
    the book I purchased was suppose to have an attached CD-rom specified in the description

    "1 of Statistics for Business and Economics, 10th Edition (with Student CD-ROM)"

    they however sent me one without one

    im very discouraged

    the shipping was however pretty fast, although I made sure to order this book from within the state of florida, where i live.

    eventually They did actually send me what i had purchased

    so i have changed my rating to 4 star

    they gave me what i bought from them
    thank you

    5-0 out of 5 stars Exceeded Expectations
    I live in Arizona and placed an order with this person who lives in Missouri. I had the package at my home within three days of clicking the purchase button!!!

    Excellent service and the book is in great condition as was stated on Amazon.

    Thank you very much.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Very difficult to comprehend
    I've noticed that the majority of reviews of this textbook only address issues related to shipment and the condition of the book upon arrival.But what about content?It's awful.Really.Who wants a math book that reads like a textbook.I've taken a few algebra classes this year and this is my first stats class.The algebra books contained multitudes of clear examples with step by step instructions.This book has long, complicated text-only paragraphs that you have to re-read multiple times and then they fail to provide many (there are a few, but very lacking)illustrated examples of HOW to arrive at the answer.This sort of book needs to be supplemented by other methods of information (classroom, tutors, Internet) to be really useful.Of course, some of us can't rely on our teachers to help, as the quality of professors varies about as much as textbooks!!It CANNOT stand on its own most of the time. Very hard to grasp.Two thumbs down.

    Moore and McCabe's Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is very helpful.It gives a great overview of the topics and explains the principles well.The exercises solidify the concepts taught in each section.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
    The book cam in amazingly fast and it was as described and it was at a good price for me. It was about $8-$9 and that was WITH shipping and handling. It also came with the CD ROM which I have not used as of yet. I just started classes and have not really used the book. I've just gone through a couple of pages and everything seems perfectly fine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth buying from this seller...
    Very satisfied with the seller. Quick shipping initially, but when I had to return the book, a full refund was awarded without difficulty at all.
