The field of statistics is rapidly transforming into a discipline
that Hal Varian at Google has called "sexy". And with good reason -
from batting averages and political polls to game shows and medical
research - the real-world application of statistics is growing by
leaps and bounds. In Naked Statistics, Charles Wheelan strips away
the arcane and technical details to get at the underlying intuition
that is key to understanding the power of statistical concepts.
Tackling a wide-ranging set of problems, he demonstrates how
statistics can be used to look at questions that are important and
relevant to us today. With the trademark wit, accessibility and fun
that made Naked Economics a bestseller, Wheelan brings another
essential discipline to life with a one-in-a-million statistics
book that you will read for pleasure.
